A Newport man was killed in a head-on crash on Highway 20 early Saturday morning, according to Oregon State Police.

Police said troopers responded to the crash near milepost 1.8 near Newport at around 12:10 a.m.

Preliminary information indicates a 2012 Subaru Outback was traveling eastbound on Highway 20, when it crossed the centerline and struck a westbound 1995 Nissan pickup head-on.

The driver of the Subaru, Jennifer Rozewski, 32, of Waldport, had non-life threatening injures and was taken to a local hospital, according to Oregon State Police.

Police said the driver of the Nissan, Joseph Dauenhauer, 52, of Newport, was also taken to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.

Once Rozewski was released form the hospital, she was arrested for manslaughter II and DUII.

Alcohol was believed to have been the contributing factor of the crash, according to Oregon State Police.
