BANKS, Ore. (KOIN 6) — A 66-year-old woman was airlifted after she crashed head-on into a car along Highway 26 in Washington County late Friday afternoon.
Investigators said Lynne Field was headed west in a Honda CR-V when she went onto the shoulder of the highway near milepost 40. She over-corrected and slammed into a Chevy Sonic carrying two people from Texas.
Field’s Honda went over an embankment and landed on its roof.
Field, who lives in Portland, was airlifted to OHSU with critical injuries. The people in the Chevy, Richard Paul, 54, and 52-year-old Mary Paul, were taken by ambulance to OHSU. The Pauls, from Pearland, Texas, are said to be in serious condition, officials said.
Officials said earlier it was a 3-vehicle crash.
The investigation continues.
