CORRECTED: Initial State Patrol report from the scene said Johnson was traveling northbound; a report from later Friday corrected that Johnson was southbound and the semi truck was northbound.

Vicky L. Johnson, Coastal Community Action Program Senior Nutrition Coordinator, was killed Friday when her SUV collided with a semi trailer on Highway 101 — 4 1/2 miles north of Raymond.

“People need to know she was one of the most amazing people ever,” said CCAP CEO Craig Dublanko. “She loved people, she was kind, she loved the seniors she worked with. You won’t meet a kinder person.”

According to the State Patrol, Johnson, 64, was southbound and the semi was northbound when the SUV and the second trailer of the semi collided in the southbound lane. Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the semi — a 62-year-old Toledo, Oregon, man — was not injured.

“When you sit down with Vicky, she makes you feel like a million dollars. She made everyone feel that way, always,” said Dublanko. “She was smart, she worked hard and she cared. Words can’t describe how much we will miss her. We loved her, and we’re standing with her family.”

The accident occurred at 10:10 a.m., according to the State Patrol. The roadway was blocked for four hours during the investigation, which is ongoing.
