ASTROIA, OR (KPTV) - A deadly crash closed Highway 30 east of Astoria on Thursday for hours.

Emergency crews responded to the scene near Milepost 92, about five miles east of Astoria, before noon Thursday.

Police said Emilee Mabey, 24, of Ocean Park, WA, died in the two-vehicle crash. Mabey was driving a Buick LeSabre west on Highway 30 and crossed the center line for unknown reasons, colliding with a truck, according to Oregon State Police. 

The truck driver, of Portland, was not hurt, OSP said.

The Oregon Department of Transportation said the road was shut down for an investigation, with a lengthy closure expected. 

By 2:40 p.m., ODOT reported the highway had reopened in both directions. 

People were advised to avoid the area during the closure, as ODOT reported there was no easy detour due to a landslide on SR-4 in Washington.

No further details were immediately released about the crash.
