One person died and a second was critically injured Monday morning when a Toyota Camry collided into the side of two flatbed trailers in the Wallowa River Canyon two miles east of Minam.

According to Oregon State Police Sergeant Jason Stone, on Monday at approximately 6:03 a.m., a 1995 Peterbilt truck pulling two flatbed trailers loaded with PVC pipe driven by Bruce Barton, 61, from Winnemucca, Nev., was travelling eastbound through a curve on Highway 82 when the westbound Camry collided into the side of the flatbed trailers.

The impact was in the area of the centerline of the highway. After impact, the Toyota came to rest on its top along the highway shoulder and the truck’s driver stopped to check on the other vehicle’s two occupants.

The Toyota’s driver, Keith Lawrence Smith, 73, from Las Vegas, Nev., was critically injured and initially taken to Providence St. Mary Medical Center in Walla Walla, Wash. He reportedly has been transferred by air to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, Wash. 

His wife and passenger, Norma H. Smith, 81, was pronounced dead at the scene.

 The Smiths were visiting relatives in the area.

Barton, the driver of the truck, was not injured.

Wallowa County Sheriff’s Office, Wallowa Fire & Rescue, and ODOT assisted at the scene. The highway at the crash scene was closed for several hours.

OSP troopers are continuing to investigate the accident.
