Police believe street racing led to a head-on crash on Highway 99W that killed the driver of an oncoming minivan.

Emergency crews responded to the crash scene just east of McMinnville at 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Investigators said Thursday they believe two cars were street racing when one of them crossed the centerline and hit a minivan.

Police said the minivan driver was killed. Three other people were taken to the hospital.

No names have been released in this case and no charges have been filed at this time.

Witnesses or anyone with additional information is asked to contact Oregon State Police.
