One person died Tuesday afternoon when a motorcycle collided with a pickup on Highway 20 near milepost 36, close to Quartzville Road.

Oregon State Troopers responded just after 2 p.m., and eastbound traffic was reported blocked while authorities worked to clear the scene, according to Oregon State Police Lieutenant Mark Duncan. Highway 20 was reopened a little more than two hours later, according to TripCheck.

The victim's name has not yet been released. We will have more information as details emerge.
