LA PINE, Ore. (AP) -- Oregon State Police have identified one of the two people who died in a head-on collision in Central Oregon Sunday night.

Police say 29-year-old Alan Eutsler of Bend, who was driving a Lexus, was pronounced dead at the crash site on Highway 97 near La Pine.

Police did not identify the 10-year-old girl who also died at the scene. She was riding with her parents, Donald Adams and Barbara Adams of Rathdrum, Idaho, in a Ford Fusion.

Police say both parents were flown to a Bend hospital with life-threatening injuries. Their 8-year-old boy was treated for minor injuries.

Police said the Lexus was traveling north on Highway 97 when it crossed the centerline, striking the Fusion.

Investigators say speed and unlawful passing by Eutsler are considered leading factors in the crash.
