A head-on crash claimed the lives of two people and injured several others near Silverton Thursday afternoon.

Oregon State Police received a call about the crash on Highway 213 near milepost 22 around 4:15 p.m.

Investigations determined that a 2003 Toyota Sienna was traveling southbound when the driver drifted off the road, overcorrected, and crashed into an oncoming 1999 Acura sedan.

The driver and the front passenger of the Toyota, both men, were pronounced dead at the scene.

OSP said a woman and a 2-year-old child, who were also passengers in the Toyota, were taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injures.

The driver of the Acura was also taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police are not yet sure what caused the Toyota driver to drift off the road.
