Oregon City woman among the dead in head-on collision
An Oregon City woman is one of two fatalities reported during a head-on crash on Sunday in Marion County.
Deputies with the local sheriff's office responded to Northeast McKay Road near Case Road after witnesses reported the crash around 1:09 p.m. on Sunday, June 16. Police found two drivers dead at the scene.
Police say Jessica Griego, 34, of Oregon City, perished in the crash, as did the other driver: Martin Johnson, 65, of Willamina. Griego's four-year-old son was transported to a Portland hopsital and is said to be in "good condition."
Authorities say Griego was driving a silver Lexus R350 westbound on McKay Road when her vehicle "went into the oncoming lane of travel," striking Johnson's black-colored Ford Explorer Sport Trac.
Deputies say they do not know if speed or alcohol were factors in the crash at this time.
