On Tuesday, July 17, 2018 at about 2:00 pm, Oregon State Police Troopers and Sweet Home Fire Department personnel responded to the report of a two vehicle crash on Hwy 20 east of Sweet Home. Preliminary investigation revealed that a 2001 Pontiac van, operated by Scott A. WARTENA, age 76, of Sweet Home, was traveling west bound on Hwy 20, when for an unknown reason began swerving back and forth in both lanes of travel. An east bound 2006 Ford Explorer, operated by Linda K. PHILLIPS, age 69, of Boring, saw the white Pontiac van weaving and attempted to avoid a collision. PHILLIPS was unable to avoid the Pontiac and the vehicles hit head on near the fogline of the east bound lane. All involved were transported to area hospitals.
