STAYTON, OR (KPTV) -

Oregon State Police are trying to determine what led to a deadly head-on crash just east of Stayton.

It happened Friday afternoon on Highway 22.

Troopers said a van driven by 38-year-old Jana Kuest, of Hillsboro, crossed the center line into oncoming traffic before hitting an SUV.

Life Flight took Kuest to Salem Hospital where doctors pronounced her dead.

A 9-year-old passenger in the van was seriously hurt and flown to Emanuel Hospital.

Kuest's 10-year-old son, along with the driver and passenger in the SUV, suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Troopers said it's possible Kuest suffered a medical emergency just before the crash.
