An eastbound 2001 Chevrolet pickup collided with a northbound dump truck at the intersection. A passenger in the pickup was pronounced dead at the scene, while the driver was transported to York General, but later died from his injuries.

The deceased were later identified as 75-year-old Lois and 77-year-old Rex Epke of Gresham. The sheriff’s office said Lois was buckled up and died from her injuries at the scene, but it’s unclear if the driver, Rex was wearing a seat belt. The dump truck driver, Mary Hallett received no injuries.

York Rescue assisted the sheriff’s office.
