A Boise woman died after a head on collision with a semi truck on Highway 20 in Oregon, according to Oregon State Police.
Sara E. Allison, 30, of Boise was driving a 2005 Ford Focus on eastbound Highway 20, when the driver of a semi truck entered Allison’s lane of travel near milepost 156. The driver of the 2015 Freightliner towing a flatbed trailer, James W. Decou, 32, of Roy, Utah, had attempted to pass a slower-moving motorhome in a no-passing area. That’s when Decou struck Allison’s Ford, according to OSP.
Allison was pronounced dead on the scene. A passenger in her car, Matthew T. Allison, 27, also of Boise, was sent to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. Decou was transported to the hospital with minor injuries, according to OSP.
The highway was blocked for several hours. The crash is still under investigation.
