Two people were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after a rollover crash involving four vehicles near Corvallis.
It happened at around 5:18 p.m. Thursday on Highway 20 near Merloy Avenue.
According to Oregon State Police, a Honda Civic driven by 57-year-old Karen Chrisman of Corvallis was stopped in the eastbound lane waiting to turn left onto Merloy Avenue, when a BMW driven by 28-year-old Michelle Libby of Albany crashed into the rear of the Honda.
The impact sent the Honda into the westbound lane, where it crashed head-on with an Oldsmobile driven by 57-year-old Susan Dennis of Corvallis. Following that collision, the Honda continued west and crashed into the front of another Honda Civic that was stopped at a nearby stop sign.
Chrisman's Honda ended up on its roof in a ditch along the highway. Chrisman and Dennis were both taken by ambulance to Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center for treatment. They are expected to recover.
Libby was not injured, but was ticketed for careless driving. The driver of the second Honda Civic, 54-year-old Paul Liebert of Corvallis, was not hurt.
