A Minnesota man has died after a crash Friday afternoon in Tilamook County, Oregon.

Around 4:45 p.m., police responded to a double fatal crash on Highway 26 near milepost 32. They found that a 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer, driven by an 18-year-old Portland woman, was heading east on Highway 26 when she lost control, sliding sideways into the westbound lane.

The Trailblazer first struck a Toyota Tacoma - with no injuries - and then hit a 2017 GMC Acadia in a T-bone crash.

The passenger in the Trailblazer, a 19-year-old woman, was pronounced dead at the scene.

One of the passengers in the GMC was identified as 80-year-old Tom Bonneville of Windom, Minn. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The GMC driver, a 71-year-old man, and three additional passengers were transported to Portland area hospitals. One of the passengers, 77-year-old Julia Bonneville from Windom, suffered serious injuries.

Two juveniles also suffered minor injuries in the crash.

Speed and seatbelt usage are being considered possible contributing factors in the severity of the crash.
