A 62-year-old woman died after driving her pickup across the centerline of Highway 20 and hitting an oncoming truck.

Emergency crews responded to the 23200 block of Highway 20 west of Philomath at 4:56 p.m. Tuesday.

Investigators said Donna Michele Heavrin was heading east on the highway in a 1998 Dodge pickup. For an unknown reason, the truck crossed over into the westbound lane and hit a 1986 Toyota pickup.

Heavrin was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Toyota, 17-year-old Riley Andrew Russell of Alsea, suffered serious trauma, according to deputies, and was taken to the hospital. An update on his condition was not available Wednesday morning.

The crash remains under investigation. Any witnesses to the crash or anyone with additional information is asked to contact Benton County Sheriff's Office Sgt. David Iverson at 541-766-6858.
