A central Oregon woman went to the hospital after crashing her car into a garbage truck.  The crash happened Wednesday morning in Prineville.

Cele Jacobson, 79, of Prineville, was driving north on Southeast Davis Loop when she came around the corner and crashed head-on into a Prineville garbage truck stopped in the roadway.

Paramedics took Jacobson to a nearby hospital, where she was later air-lifted to a hospital in Bend, investigators said.  Her injuries are unknown.  Jacobson was having chest pain shortly before the crash, they said.

Crook County sheriff's deputies are investigating the crash.  At this point, Jacobson has not received a ticket.
