Oregon State Police identified the victims Thursday of a two-vehicle, head-on crash on Highway 26. 

The crash happened Wednesday at 3:35 p.m. when a 1994 Ford pickup driven by Trevor E. Hughes, 26, from Rhododendron, was traveling eastbound on Highway 26 near milepost 39. It traveled across the center turn lane and into the westbound lanes.

The pickup collided head-on with a 2004 Subaru Legacy station wagon that was traveling in the right westbound lane. After impact, the pickup rolled before coming to rest on its side.

The Subaru's driver, John M. Fletcher, age 18, from Battle Ground, WA, was extricated and transported by LifeFlight to Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) with critical injuries. He was using safety restraints and the car's airbags deployed.

Hughes was transported by ground ambulance to OHSU where he was treated and released for minor injuries. He was using safety restraints.

OSP troopers and detectives from the Portland Area Command office are continuing the investigation into the cause of the crash with the assistance of the Clackamas County District Attorney's Office. Senior Trooper Dan Swift is the lead investigator.

OSP was assisted at the scene by Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, Hoodland Fire Department, and ODOT.
