The elderly driver of a Prius was driving westbound in an eastbound lane when the driver of a BMW station wagon turned left in front of her, police said. The BMW hit the right front corner panel of the Prius, causing the Prius to slip, slide and proceed past an electrical power box, where the front right passenger tire hit a tree and flipped over.

“It was an offset crash, meaning it really wasn't head-on,” Lake Oswego Police Lt. Doug Treat said.

The Lake Oswego Fire Department responded to the crash and extracted the driver from the Prius. The 73-year-old woman, whose name was not released, was transported to Legacy Meridian Park Medical Center; the intersection was cleared by noon.
