SELMA, Ore. — One person is dead and multiple others injured following a two-vehicle crash on Redwood Highway near Selma on Sunday evening, according to Oregon State Police (OSP).

Troopers and emergency crews responded around 4:45 p.m. to Highway 199 near milepost 15. Investigators determined that 50-year-old David Remsh of Selma was driving a Subaru Impreza southbound on the highway when he veered into the northbound lane for "unknown reasons," hitting a Mazda 3 driven by 54-year-old Guy Fetty of Gold Hill.

Remsh was airlifted to the hospital. Two passengers, 31-year-old Amber Gaylord of Glendale and 29-year-old Kali Remsh of Grants Pass, were taken by ground ambulance.

Fetty received fatal injuries and died at the scene. His passenger, 43-year-old Anna Fetty of Gold Hill, was brought to the hospital and later flown to a different hospital in the Portland area.

OSP said that Hwy 199 was reduced to one lane of traffic for about three hours after the crash.
