MT. VERNON - Three people were injured Friday, Oct. 15, in a two-vehicle crash on Highway 26 at the east entrance of Clyde Holliday State Park.
Undersheriff Todd McKinley said the accident occurred about 5:45 p.m. as Roberta Davis, 61, of Baker City was westbound on Highway 26 in a Toyota Camry, following her husband who was at the wheel of another car.
McKinley said the couple had planned to stop at the park to let their dogs out. Trailing the husband's car, Davis' car turned into the path of an eastbound Ford Focus driven by Kathi Springer, 20, of Mt. Vernon.
McKinley said limited visibility due to the setting sun was a factor in the crash.
The collision injured both drivers and also a passenger in the Focus, Katie Watt, 24, of John Day.
Ambulances from John Day, Prairie City and Mt. Vernon responded to the scene and took all three to Blue Mountain Hospital.
