A 75-year old Oregon City woman died and her 8-year old great-grandson received non-life threatening injuries Tuesday afternoon when their car collided with a commercial truck at the intersection of Highway 211 and Canby-Marquam Highway west of Molalla. Highway 211 re-opened at approximately 6:00 p.m.
 
Preliminary investigation indicates on January 13, 2009 at approximately 12:45 p.m. a 2003 Buick Park Avenue driven by DONNA JEANETTE LANE, age 75, from Oregon City, was southbound on the Canby-Marquam Highway when it failed to come to a complete stop for a stop sign at the Highway 211 intersection. The Buick turned left in front of a westbound commercial truck driven by KARMJAT MANN, age 51, from Yuba City, California. Following a near head-on collision, the truck continued off Highway 211 jackknifing until it came to a stop. The car came to a stop on the roadway.
 
LANE was not using safety restraints and was ejected. She was pronounced deceased at the scene.
 
The victim's great-grandson, JOSEPH FELICIANO, age 8, from Oregon City, was using safety restraints. He was transported by LifeFlight to Oregon Health Sciences University with non-life threatening injuries.
