According to a news release from the Oregon State Police, 40-year-old Richard Andrew Jackson died at the scene.

The crash happened at 4:30 p.m. on Oregon 126 West about three miles west of Walton, which is midway between Eugene and the coastal town of Florence.

Jackson was driving a 1995 Ford pickup truck westbound when, police say, he crossed the centerline and struck an eastbound 1998 Chevrolet pickup truck being driven by 56-year-old Deborah Hope, of Eugene.

Hope and her passenger, 58-year-old Richard Hennigan, also of Eugene, were seriously injured. Hope was taken by air ambulance to Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Corvallis and Hennigan was taken by ground ambulance to Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend in Springfield.

OSP troopers are continuing to investigate. Recruit Trooper Candyce Fiddy is the lead investigator and Senior Trooper Blaine Hlebechuk is the lead collision reconstructionist.
