One person was killed and another was airlifted to the hospital in a three-vehicle collision on Highway 97 in Jefferson County Sunday.
Oregon State Police says it happened at around 9:39 p.m., about five miles south of Madras.
OSP says a Chrysler Town & Country driven by a 53-year-old Madras man was heading northbound when it crossed the center line and side swiped a southbound Nissan Rogue driven by a 23-year-old from Warm Springs. The people in the Rogue were not hurt.

The cause of the crash was still under investigation Tuesday.
The crash affected traffic for about 3 1/2 hours.
