A Seaside woman died in a crash involving two vehicles on U.S. Highway 26 on Sunday afternoon.
Lisa Lawson, 68, who was driving a Kia Soul, died at the scene near milepost 48 near Manning. Her passenger, a Seaside resident, was injured and taken to a local hospital.
The other vehicle, a GMC Sierra, was traveling eastbound, veered into the oncoming lane and slammed into the Lawsons’ westbound vehicle, according to Oregon State Police. The driver and his passenger — two Beaverton residents — also went to a local hospital.
The incident closed down the highway for about four hours, police said.
