Hillsboro man killed in crash on Highway 6
When a 1971 Volkswagen bus drifted into lane, a truck driver from Cornelius was unable to avoid collision
Oregon State Police say a 58-year-old Hillsboro-area man died Friday from injuries suffered in a head-on collision with a semi truck on Highway 6 just east of Glenwood.
Police say Dell Roy Malstrom II, 58, of Hillsboro, died on the way to the hospital after his westbound 1971 Volkswagen van crossed the center line and collided with an eastbound truck driven by Douglas Malone, of Cornelius.
Malone veered his truck to the right against a guardrail but was unable to avoid the van. The collision was described by police as nearly head-on.
Malone was driving for Gardner Trucking and was hauling cardboard boxes. He was using safety restraints.
Malone was treated for minor injuries but wasn't transported to the hospital.
