Five people were transported to area hospitals with various injuries after a head-on collision on Highway 211 east of Woodburn Thursday night.
Around 6:15 p.m., a Chevy pickup carrying five adults traveling westbound drifted into the other lane and hit a Buick with one male occupant head-on.
One passenger in the pickup went to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center via LifeFlight with serious injuries. The others had non-life threatening injuries.
The two drivers were wearing safety restraints but the pickup's passengers were not.
Police are still on the scene as of 9 p.m. but one lane has been opened. Police say they will release the names of those involved Friday.
