Tualatin Man dies in crash on Highway 22 Monday
A 37-year-old Tualatin man was killed in a head-on crash with another vehicle Monday morning on Highway 22 at Milepost 28 in Linn County.
Oregon State Police reported that Michael T. Hunt died at the scene of the accident, which occurred around 8 a.m.
An initial investigation revealed that a 2005 Kia Sorento, operated by Tarah J. Fair, 27, of Redmond, was traveling westbound on Highway 22 when he lost control of his vehicle on a stretch of icy road, crossed into the eastbound lane and collided with Hunt's 2008 Nissan Sentra.
Fair was taken to St. Charles Hospital in Bend with serious injuries.
Eastbound Highway 22 was closed for almost five hours with only one lane of travel accessible while emergency officials investigated the accident.
