Two people were killed and one person was injured on Saturday night after a multi-car crash on Interstate 84 in eastern Oregon.

The crash took place when a Jeep Liberty rear-ended a Freightliner towing a flatbed trailer close to milepost 378 heading westbound. The semi pulled to the right shoulder, while the Jeep Liberty was stopped in the fast lane.

The Jeep was then struck by a Honda Fit in the fast lane, taking out the driver, a 29-year-old named Eric Torres Santana, and the passenger, a 20-year-old named Noel Alejandro Santana Dominguez, both of Caldwell. 

Torres was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

Dominguez succumbed to injuries at the hospital.

Police said a 48-year-old identified as Tracy Haws of Nampa, traveling in the Honda Fit, was hospitalized with critical injuries. The Freightliner driver, a 32-year-old identified as Akbar Tanai of San Antonio, Texas, was not injured.

Oregon State Police investigated the crash.
