A westbound dump truck driven by 58-year old Dudley L. Lenhart of Tenmile, crashed into the passenger side of the pickup. After impact, the dump truck veered off the road, striking an ODOT message board and then into a pasture on the north side of Highway 42 where it overturned onto its side. 22-year old Kaila L. Boyer of Riddle, the pickup's passenger, was pronounced deceased at the scene. James was transported by air to Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland with critical injuries. Both pickup occupants were using safety restraints.
Lenhart was transported by ambulance to Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend with serious injuries. Safety restraints use is pending investigation confirmation.
OSP troopers and a crash reconstructionist are continuing the investigation. Highway 42 west of Winston will remain closed but a detour is in place.
OSP was assisted by ODOT, Winston Police Department, Douglas County Sheriff's Office, and Winston-Dillard Fire Department.
