Semi slid into oncoming traffic on Oregon highway, triggered fatal 4-vehicle crash

A 65-year-old Arizona woman died and her 64-year-old husband was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries after a 4-vehicle crash involving a semi-truck on Highway 97 in Klamath County Monday morning, Oregon State Police said.

Karen Goulding, 65, of Antham, Arizona, died in the crash.

Her husband David Goulding, 64, was taken from the scene to the hospital by helicopter.

The crash happened around 11 a.m. near the intersection with Oregon Highway 58 when a semi driven by a 30-year-old from Atwater, California, braked for vehicles slowing ahead.

Due to winter weather conditions, state police said the semi tractor-trailer slid and crossed over into the oncoming lane across the icy roadway and into the Gouldings’2016 Mercedes SUV.
