DONALD, OR (KPTV) - An 81-year-old Newberg woman died in a four-car crash after she veered into oncoming traffic in Marion County, according to deputies.
Emergency crews responded to McKay Road Northeast near French Prairie Road Northeast at 7:55 a.m. Tuesday.
Investigators said Mildred Shaber was driving east when, for unknown reasons, she drove into the westbound lane.
Schaber side-swiped a large westbound work truck. The 39-year-old man driving the truck was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
Schaber then continued in the wrong lane and hit an oncoming car head-on. Two women in that car were taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries not believed to be life-threatening.
A pickup driven by an 84-year-old man then hit Schaber’s car from behind after the head-on crash.
The man driving the pickup was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
Schaber was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators said she was not wearing a seat belt.
Deputies believe the glare from the sun was a contributing factor in this case.
