Two people died and a third person injured in a 3-vehicle crash on Highway 99 Thursday morning (left). One person later died in a crash on the detour route around the crash scene (right).

The pair of crashes near Junction City Thursday that killed 3 people and injured a fourth remain under investigation, Oregon State Police say.

While no concrete plans exist for ways to make the highway safer, the road is on the Oregon DOT's radar.

"If you look at the last 5 1/2 years, there's been 205 crashes," said Rick Little with Oregon DOT. The data is from Jan. 1, 2009, to May 31, 2014. "That's almost 3 crashes a month, or 1 every 10 days."
