A 25-year-old Brownsville woman died early Sunday in a two-vehicle crash on Highway 228 near milepost 4 in Linn County.

Kater was pronounced dead on the scene. Sanders and his two juvenile passengers were not injured in the crash, troopers said.

The State Police was assisted on the scene by the Linn County Sheriff's Office, the Brownsville Fire Department, the Lebanon Fire District and the Oregon Department of Transportation.
