Three people died due to icy roads on Monday night in Deschutes County, Oregon.

The crash took place just before 10 p.m. when the officials responded to a two-vehicle crash along Highway 97 near milepost 113.

It happened when a northbound Dodge Durango driven by a 39-year-old identified as Jared Lewis, of Redmond, lost control while passing on the slick and icy roads. Due to these conditions, the Durango spun out of control into the southbound lane and crashed with an International 749 utility truck.

Oregon State Police is investigating the crash.

Lewis, Kristopher Frisbee, 44, and Heather Good, 40, were pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the utility truck was not injured.

Highway 97 was closed for a few hours before it was reopened.
