An Astoria teenager was killed Wednesday afternoon when he lost control of his car on a curve on U.S. Highway 101 north of Gearhart and collided with another vehicle.
Broderick Danielson, 18, was driving his black Honda Civic northbound near milepost 14 at about 2 p.m. when he skidded into the southbound lanes, according to the Oregon State Police. His car collided with a Toyota 4Runner driven by Melany Bloom, 38, of Rosburg.
Bloom was taken to Columbia Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.
The highway opened to both lanes of traffic around 5 p.m.
