Highway 99W reopens following fatal crash

 One person was killed in a two-vehicle head-on crash about 9 p.m. Wednesday north of McMinnville on Highway 99W.

Three people were transported to area hospitals.

The highway was closed and a detour put in place for more than four hours while a Yamhill County Multi-Agency Traffic Team investigation took place and the scene was cleared.

The Oregon State Police is expected to release more information related to the crash later today.

Seven people have died on Yamhill County roads this year, and a McMinnville woman was killed in a crash on Wallace Road in Polk County.
