2 killed in head-on crash east of Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Two people died and four were injured in a head-on crash east of Portland.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office says Estacada firefighters responded to Saturday night's crash on Highway 224, finding a 7-year-old child unresponsive in one of the vehicles. CPR was performed but the child died at the scene.

The other patients were taken by either air or ground to Portland-area hospitals. One of them died on the way.

The highway was closed for hours after the crash.
