A Lyons teen suffered serious injuries in a head-on collision Tuesday morning at milepost 21 on Highway 226 four miles west of Lyons.

According to an Oregon State Police news release, James Ismael Escobar Gunn, 17, was driving westbound in a black 1998 Honda Civic when, for unknown reasons, he veered into the eastbound lane and struck an orange 2006 Kenworth log truck, operated by 52-year-old Orville Kenneth Tobey III of Stayton.

Gunn suffered serious injuries and was transported to an area hospital for treatment. Tobey was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Highway 226 was closed for about two-and-a-half hours until one alternating lane was opened for traffic.

Oregon State Police was assisted at the scene by Lyons firefighters and medics, the Lebanon Police Department and Oregon Department of Transportation.
