A 2-month-old child and a pair of adults dodged death when a passing driver clipped their car on an icy road near Klamath Falls on Wednesday and sent both vehicles flying into an irrigation canal, police said. Howard Kingman, of Sisters, was driving a Chevrolet Tahoe north on U.S. 97 around 1:05 p.m. when he tried to pass a Toyota Prius near milepost 264, Oregon State Police said. The 70-year-old driver lost control on the icy roadway and struck the Prius, which carried Robert Burton, 56, Bree Burton, 20, and her infant son, police said. The two vehicles flew off the highway and came crashing through the ice of a frozen irrigation canal, police said. Kingman's Tahoe landed on top of the Prius, which submerged partially underwater. All three Prius passengers, who are from Chelan, Wash., suffered only minor injuries and were taken to Sky Lakes Medical Center. Police cited Kingman for reckless driving.
