Deadly Day After Christmas On Highway 26

WARM SPRINGS, Ore. (AP) – Three people have died in a multi-vehicle crash on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation.

Oregon State Police Lt. Cari Boyd says a car traveling west on U.S. Highway 26 struck the back of another vehicle, sending it into the eastbound lane, where it collided with a van.

Two people in the vehicle pushed into the van’s path died at the scene Monday: 37-year-old Adam Clausen and 39-year-old Shannon O’Leary, both of Portland. A 4-year-old child in that vehicle survived with minor injuries.

The van driver heading east also died at the scene. Boyd identified him as 34-year-old Robert Burke of Reno, Nevada. His two passengers, one of whom is a 22-month-old child, were taken to a Bend hospital for treatment of injuries not considered life-threatening.
