(SALEM, Ore.) - Deputies aren't sure why the driver of a 1985 Honda drove into the path of an oncoming vehicle early Saturday morning. The Marion County Sheriff's Office responded to the vehicle crash at 5995 Hazelgreen Road NE just before 7:00 a.m. Saturday.

Lieutenant Sheila Lorance with the Marion County Sheriff's Office, says deputies made contact with the driver of a 2000 Dodge Ram pickup, 31-year old Mark Zank of Silverton.

"He said he had been driving west-bound on Hazelgreen when he observed a blue Honda Prelude traveling east-bound toward him."

Lorance says the driver saw the vehicle swerve slightly into the east-bound lane as it came around the corner and then went back into its own lane.

"He said the vehicle appeared to be under control but then crossed the yellow line and struck the front of his vehicle. Zank was transported to the Silverton Hospital with minor injuries."

The driver of the Honda Prelude, 40-year old Reynaldo Velazquez-Celestino of Salem, was deceased at the scene and had to be extricated from the vehicle.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation at this time.
