Two people killed in 2-car crash in Longview

LONGVIEW, Wash. -- Two 20-year-old men died in a head-on crash in Longview on Monday night.

State troopers told KATU that one car was heading westbound on Industrial Way and tried to pass another vehicle in a no-passing zone near the intersection with Memorial Park Drive. The westbound car swerved back into the westbound lane after passing the vehicle, but crashed into an eastbound car head-on.

Dakota Jenson of Toutle and Jose Vega-Lee died in the crash. The two were both in the passing car.

Paramedics took both people in the eastbound vehicle to the hospital for treatment.

Longview police said it did not appear that drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.
