(HUNTINGTON, Ore.) - Oregon State Police troopers are continuing the investigation into Saturday afternoon's fatal traffic crash on Interstate 84 near Huntington involving a passenger car and commercial vehicle.

OSP Sergeant Darin Helman, on December 12, 2009 at approximately 12:31 p.m. a 1982 Ford four-door driven by 22-year old Jenna Lee Ulrich of Sammamish, Washington, was eastbound on Interstate 84 near milepost 339.

"Ms. Ulrich lost control and slid sideways into the center of the eastbound lanes where it was struck in the driver side by a trailing commercial truck," Helman said.

Jenna Ulrich was pronounced deceased at the scene. Her 26-year old male passenger, Thomas Wayne Stroppel of Seattle, received non-life threatening injuries and was transported by Huntington ambulance to Holy Rosary Hospital in Ontario.

The truck driver, 51-year old Lloyd Adam Knoblich of Colville, Washington, was not injured.

All three were using safety restraints.

OSP troopers from the Baker City work site are continuing the investigation. ODOT and local emergency responders assisted at the scene. The eastbound lanes at the point of the crash were open to one lane during most of the investigation.

I went to high school with Jenna. She was beautiful inside and out, not to mention the most talented person I have ever met. My prayers are with her family. Jenna, you will be missed.

I learned of my brother's daughter's death yesterday. It's a tragic loss not only for her family and relations, but for the world too, who has lost a most creative, dedicated contributor. We will all miss her.

Very sad...nearly the same age as my daughter...I cant imagine what her family must be going through. Our prayers are with her family.
