A Vancouver driver was involved in a Tuesday night two-vehicle crash in Dayton, Ore., that killed a 13-year-old girl. Jolan Miller, 33, of Vancouver was not injured. A passenger of a second vehicle, Kalie Mosgrove, of Dayton died at the scene. Kalie was a Pirate Pride award winner at her Dayton Junior High School. Kalie's mother, Connie Mosgrove, 47, of Dayton suffered critical injuries and was transported by Life Flight to Portland's Legacy Emanuel Hospital.

The crash happened at 8:10 p.m. at the west end of Dayton, about seven miles east of McMinnville. Connie Mosgrove was driving a van and attempting to cross Highway 18 from Southeast Ash Street. That's when her van was struck on the passenger side by Miller's eastbound truck pulling a trailer, according to an Oregon State Police bulletin.

Both vehicles came to rest on opposite sides of Highway 18.

OSP troopers are continuing to investigate.
