A 42-year old Redmond woman was killed Wednesday afternoon in a two-vehicle head-on crash on Highway 22E about six miles east of Detroit.
 
On January 16, 2008 at approximately 2:26 p.m. a 1988 Ford Mustang driven by CYNTHIA LEE WHITE, age 42, from Redmond, was eastbound on Highway 22E near milepost 59 negotiating a right curve it lost control and crossed the center line where it crashed head-on with a westbound 1998 Toyota Avalon on the westbound shoulder.
 
WHITE, who was driving with a suspended license, was pronounced deceased at the scene. She was using safety restraints.
 
The Toyota's driver, ROGER M. McJUNKIN, age 62, and passenger SANDRA L. McJUNKIN, age 61, both from Bend received non-life threatening injuries and were transported to Santiam Hospital in Sayton. Both were using safety restraints.
 
The highway was well sanded at the time of the collision and excessive speed is a possible factor.
Oregon State Police troopers from the Salem Area Command are continuing the investigation. One lane was opened about 3:45 p.m. and the highway completely cleared about 5:00 p.m.
 
Marion County Sheriffs Office and ODOT assisted at the scene.
