The near head-on collision happened west of Molalla.
(MOLALLA) - Police say a 75-year old Oregon City woman died and her 8-year old great-grandson received non-life threatening injuries Tuesday afternoon when their car collided with a commercial truck at the intersection of Highway 211 and Canby-Marquam Highway west of Molalla.
Oregon City resident Jeanette Lane is the driver who died in the crash. Highway 211 remained closed until approximately 6:00 PM, for vehicle removal and completion of the on-scene crash investigation.
OSP says the preliminary investigation indicates that today around 12:45 PM, a 2003 Buick Park Avenue driven by Jeanette Lane, was southbound on the Canby-Marquam Highway when it failed to come to a complete stop for a stop sign at the Highway 211 intersection.
The Buick turned left in front of a westbound commercial truck driven by 51-tear old Karmjat Mann of Yuba City, California.
Following a near head-on collision, the truck continued off Highway 211 jackknifing until it came to a stop.
The car came to a stop on the roadway, investigators said.
They say Mrs. Lane was not using safety restraints and was ejected from the vehicle during the crash. She was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Jeanette Lane's great-grandson was using safety restraints. He was transported by LifeFlight to Oregon Health Sciences University with non-life threatening injuries.
Mann was using safety restraints and was not injured. He was driving for Hammell Transport Services Inc. transporting ice cream products.
Oregon State Police troopers from the Portland Area Command office are continuing the investigation.
Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, Molalla Police Department, Molalla Fire & Rescue, ODOT, and Clackamas County Emergency Management assisted at the scene.
