WHEELER, OR (KPTV) -

An elderly man and a young child from The Dalles, were killed in a crash along Highway 101 near Wheeler on Saturday afternoon, according to Oregon State Police.

Troopers say the crash happened when the driver of a 2006 Dodge Caravan lost control on a curve and spun into the northbound lanes of the highway.

The Caravan was struck on the right side by a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado pickup.

OSP says two passengers in the van; Douglas Lee Arnold, 71, and Douglas Clark Arnold, 8, both of The Dalles were killed in the crash.

Two additional passengers in the van, Sandra Arnold, 45, and Kim Arnold, 16, were taken to Tillamook County General Hospital.

The driver of the van, Bobbi Joanne Radcliffe, 49, from the Dalles was taken to the hospital where she was treated for minor injuries and then released.

Sandra Arnold was treated for non-life threatening injures and also released.

Kim Arnold was seriously injured in the crash and eventually transported to OHSU due to the extent of her injuries.

OSP said the driver of the pickup, Chad Perdue, 47, and his passenger, Averee Perdue, 9, are both from Castle Rock, WA, and were taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries and later released.

OSP says everyone was wearing safety belts at the time of the crash.
