PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say an 18-year-old girl has died after colliding with a log truck on Highway 101 near Beaver.

Law enforcement officials say Mikayla Michelle Howard was driving a 2003 Saab when it crossed into the other lane for an unknown reason on Friday morning. The car then hit a 2018 Kenworth log truck head on.

According to a news release on Sunday, Howard was taken to a local hospital and later transported by LifeFlight for further treatment at OHSU. She eventually died Friday as a result of her injuries.

The driver of the log truck wasn’t injured.
