CLATSKANIE, OR (KPTV) -

A serious head-on crash near Clatskanie killed one person and sent six others to several hospitals.

Oregon State Police responded to the crash on Highway 30 at Bradley Hill, about 13 miles west of Clatskanie, just before 6 p.m.

Investigators said the crash happened when a passenger car driven by an adult man was traveling eastbound on the highway and crossed over the double solid centerline while negotiating a curve.

That car ended up crashing head-on with a passenger car driven by a woman traveling in the left westbound lane.

The male driver and a child passenger were taken by helicopter to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center. The adult male died after arriving at the hospital.

A second child in the first car was taken by an ambulance to another hospital.

Officials said there were four people in the second car. All were taken to local hospitals. The female driver is believed to have suffered critical injuries.

The highway remained closed late Sunday.
