On April 23rd, at approximately 3:15PM, OSP Troopers and emergency personnel responded to the report of a two vehicle head-on crash on Highway 101 near milepost 28 (just north of Cannon Beach).

Preliminary information indicates a 2011 Hyundai sport utility was traveling southbound on Highway 101 when it crossed over the centerline and struck a northbound 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe head-on. After the impact both vehicles came to rest on the highway.

The driver of the Hyundai, Gregory W HERON, and his passenger, Martha H HERON (both age 64 and from Manzanita) were pronounced deceased on scene. The driver of the Chevrolet, Diana R FEKE, age 57, and Jethro J FEKE, age 59 (both of West Linn) received non-life threatening injuries. Both were taken to an area hospital for treatment.

Highway 101 was closed for about three and a half hours while the investigation was conducted. OSP was assisted by the Clatsop County Medical Examiner, Cannon Beach Fire Department, Cannon Beach Police Department, and the Oregon Department of Transportation.
