Oregon State Police continue to investigate a two car crash at Highway 99E and Lake Creek Lane in Linn County Saturday.

The crash killed one person and injured five other people.

OSP says a 1991 Toyota Camry driven by Jon Nelson was westbound on Lake Creek Lane when it failed to stop as a stop sign and was struck on the passenger side by a 1998 Dodge four door that was southbound on Highway 99E.

Both cars ended up in the ditch off the highway and the Dodge caught fire, which fire crews were able to put out.

The Toyota's front passenger, 70-year-old Leopoldo Cabanizas Clemente, died at the scene.

The driver and two other passengers were sent to an area hospital; two by air ambulance and one by ground.

The driver and passenger of the Dodge were taken by ground ambulance to a hospital in Corvallis.

All the occupants were using their safety restraints.
