Oregon State Police is responding to a deadly crash on Highway 26 near Government Camp.

Highway 26 has been closed 8 miles south of Highway 35 due to the crash, which occurred Sunday near milepost 65.

According to OSP, the preliminary investigation revealed that a white 2004 Ford Excursion, which was traveling westbound on Highway 26, lost control on the snow-covered highway and crossed into the eastbound lane. The Ford then struck a silver 2013 Subaru Outback that was traveling eastbound.

A passenger inside the Subaru was pronounced dead at the scene.
