The investigation revealed that Sunday, around 6:53 PM, a Mitsubishi 3000 two-door driven by 34-year old Azlan Breeze of Cave Junction, was southbound on Highway 199 near milepost 24 when, for unknown reasons, it crossed into the northbound lane and crashed head-on with a 2005 Kia Amanti driven by 61-year old Carolyn Calkins of Talent. Both operators were pronounced deceased at the scene.

The Kia's right front passenger, 13-year old Tracy Jackson of Medford, was seriously injured and transported by ambulance to Three Rivers Hospital in Grants Pass.

Safety restraint use information is not available.

As a result of the crash, Highway 199 was closed in both directions for about four hours.

Oregon State Police troopers from the Grants Pass and Central Point offices say they are continuing the investigation.
