PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A driver of a 1992 Ford F-150 was killed after slamming head-on into a tow truck on Highway 224 late Friday.

Oregon State Police said the F-150 was traveling eastbound just before 11:30 p.m. when it crossed over into the westbound lane for an unknown reason. The truck then crashed into a 2014 Dodge Ram tow truck near SE Dale Lane, east of Barton.

The driver of the F-150, identified as 59-year-old Kelly Mumby of Estacada, sustained fatal injuries from the crash and was pronounced dead at the scene.

OSP said the cause of the crash is under investigation.

A GoFundme campaign has been set up for Smith’s medical costs.
