MOHAWK, Ore. – Emergency responders are on the scene of a fatal crash on Marcola Road north of Shadows Drive.

Two vehicles were involved in a head-on crash, a dark-colored sedan and a white pickup truck towing a trailer. The wreck happened at about 1:15 p.m. north of the Pine Ridge Golf Club. Investigators say the sedan was headed south on Marcola Road when for unknown reasons it crossed into the northbound lane, crashing into a truck headed north.

Sgt. Tom Speldrich of the Lane County Sheriff’s Office said the driver of the sedan died in the crash. The driver and a passenger in the pickup truck have minor injuries, he said.

Authorities are not releasing any names at this time as they work to notify family members. 

Speldrich said the road will be shut down while the crash is investigated. Alternate routes include Sunderman Road and Hill Road.

A medical helicopter responded to the crash but did not transport anyone.
