Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers are continuing the investigation into Monday morning's fatal traffic crash involving a commercial vehicle and passenger car on Highway 213 in the Mulino area. The crash resulted in the death of a Molalla-area man.
 
According to Trooper Kevin Ferguson, on April 11, 2011 at approximately 10:25 a.m. a 2005 Freightliner truck pulling a semi-trailer driven by FERNANDO CASTENADA, age 38, from Pomona, California was southbound on Highway 213 near milepost 12 when, for an unknown reason, a northbound 1990 Oldsmobile four-door crossed the centerline. Both vehicles collided nearly head-on and came to rest blocking the highway.
 
The Oldsmobile driver, BRUCE WAYNE TURNER, age 55, from Molalla, was pronounced deceased at the scene. He was using safety restraints.
 
CASTENADA was using safety restraints and was not injured. The semi-trailer was not loaded.
OSP troopers from the Portland Area Command office are continuing the investigation.
 
Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, Molalla Police Department, Molalla Fire Department, and ODOT assisted at the scene. ODOT had a detour in place during the over 4 hour closure.
