After a tragic accident Thursday which killed 2 Mapleton High School students and injured 3 others, the state is looking at ways to improve safety on Highway 126. The road winds through the coast range between Eugene and Florence.
Little: "In this year alone, in 2014, we've had 10 fatalities. That's more than we've experienced in all of the past 5 years. And that's just unacceptable."
Rick Little is spokesman for the Oregon Department of Transportation. He says they're studying the highway to see how to make it safer.
