Oregon State Police (OSP) have learned that a 44-year old Lynnwood, Washington woman died from injuries at a Portland-area hospital that she sustained in Thursday afternoon's traffic crash on Highway 30 west of Columbia City.
According to OSP Sergeant Andrew Merila, on June 17, 2010 at approximately 12:07 p.m. a 2007 Freightliner truck pulling two empty tanker trailers was driven by ROBERT R. BALDWIN, age 46, from Milwaukie, southbound on Highway 30 near milepost 35 when a northbound 1999 Pontiac Grand Am crossed the centerline and collided head-on with the truck.
The Pontiac's driver, JULIE LYNN DEANGELO, age 44, from Lynnwood, Washington was critically injured and transported by LifeFlight to Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland where she later died.
BALDWIN was not injured. He was driving for Harris Transportation Company.
Both drivers were using safety restraints.
OSP troopers from the St. Helens office, with the help of an OSP collision reconstructionist from the Astoria office, are continuing the investigation to determine the cause of the crash.
