Oregon State Police said a hailstorm moving through the area is the cause of three crashes on Highway 99E on Monday night three miles south of Oregon City.

Just before 5 p.m., troopers were sent to the crashes all within 200 yards of each other.

One vehicle lost control on the slick roadway and crashed head-on into the other car, according to Oregon State Police.

A 5-year-old child was taken to Doernbecher Children's Hospital with injuries initially described as life-threatening. Police said Tuesday she was expected to survive. 

Two other people suffered injuries described as non-life threatening. 

Highway 99E was closed for around three hours following the crash.
