NEWBERG — Four people were injured Tuesday afternoon in a two-vehicle crash on Highway 240 about five miles west of Newberg.

The Oregon State Police gave this account of the 5 p.m. crash:

Andres B. Classen, 20, of Milwaukie, was driving a 1990 Plymouth sedan eastbound when the vehicle traveled onto the soft highway shoulder.

In an attempt to bring the car back into the travel lane, Classen over-corrected and lost control. The vehicle spun into the westbound lane and was struck in the rear by a 2004 Ford pickup driven by Cindy J. McClain, 54, of Lafayette.

Classen and passenger Sarah Gillania, 19, of Sherwood, were transported by Newberg Fire Department ambulance to Providence Newberg Medical Center with minor injuries. Passenger, Joseph Bareither, 21, of Waterville, Wash., was transported by Life Flight helicopter to Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland with non-life threatening injuries. A fourth passenger was not injured.

McClain was transported by ambulance to Willamette Valley Medical Center in McMinnville with minor injuries.

The highway was closed while the crash was investigated and the scene cleared.
