CHEMULT, Ore. — An Arizona woman was killed and her husband seriously injured in a crash north of Chemult along Highway 97 on Monday, according to Oregon State Police.

Troopers from the Bend Area Command and LaPine Outpost responded to reports of a four-vehicle crash on Hwy 97 near the Highway 58 junction around 11 a.m. on Monday.

An investigation found that 30-year-old Paramjit Singh of Atwater, California, was traveling southbound in a red 2020 Freightliner semi when he began to break for vehicles slowing in front of him. Singh's truck slid on the icy roadway, crossing into the oncoming lane.

OSP said that 64-year-old David Goulding of Anthem, Arizona was driving northbound in a black 2016 Mercedes SUV at the time, with his wife, 65-year-old Karen Goulding, in the passenger seat. Singh's trailer smashed into the Mercedes, according to police.

Karen Goulding did not survive the crash. David Goulding was rushed to a Bend hospital via air ambulance for treatment of life-threatening injuries, OSP said. The truck driver, Singh, was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Two other vehicles were involved in the crash, but no other injuries were reported.

"Winter weather conditions and speed were a contributing factor in the crash," OSP concluded.

Police reported several crashes on different stretches of Highway 97 over the weekend due to similar conditions, including one fatality.
