WARRENTON — A collision between a deliver truck and a passenger car on U.S. Highway 101 near Costco resulted in one fatality and generated a major emergency response around 3 a.m. Sunday.

Oregon State Police said they responded to a two-vehicle, fatal crash, on Hwy 101 near milepost 7.5 in Clatsop County.

The preliminary investigation has determined that a passenger car, which was northbound, crossed over the center line, into the path of what State Police described as a semi-tractor trailer.

One of the occupants in the passenger car was pronounced deceased on scene and all others involved have minor to no injuries.

The roadway was closed for around five hours, but is open to all traffic as of 9 a.m. Sunday.

At this time the names and other information are not available.
