According to the Oregon State police, Thursday morning at about 7:30, a 1992 Chervrolet Blazer driven by a 59-year-old woman from Wamic was traveling northbound on Highway 197 when a 2005 Chevrolet pickup driven by 73-year-old Peter D. Kelly of The Dalles was westbound on Ward Road and turned in front of the Blazer. The SUV struck the pickup’s left side near milepost 8. After impact, the pickup came to rest off the side of the highway and the SUV came to rest in the southbound lane. The Blazer’s 72-year-old male front seat passenger was pronounced dead at the scene.
