Posted: Updated:

A Warren woman is recovering after first responders had to cut her out of her car following a crash west of St. Helens on Friday morning.

The wreck happened at about 7:30 a.m. on Highway 30 near milepost 30 in the right-hand lane.

Oregon State Police said speed and icy road conditions were contributing factors.

Matthew Anderson, 16, from Deer Island was headed eastbound in his truck when he tried to pass another car, investigators told FOX 12.

Anderson lost control on the icy roadway and swing into the westbound lanes, where he was struck by a car driven by Karen Simmons, 45.

Columbia River Fire and Rescue personnel extricated Simmons from her car.

She was taken by ambulance to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland with non-life-threatening injuries.

Anderson was not hurt.

No citations have been issued. The investigation is continuing.
