A woman was injured Friday afternoon in a two-car crash on Highway 20 and Fairview Road east of Lebanon.

The incident was reported shortly after 2:20 p.m. and reduced travel to one lane in each direction for close to an hour.

According to a Lebanon Fire District news release, witnesses reported that a Ford sedan was attempting to turn left from Fairview onto Highway 20 and pulled in front of a Honda sedan bound toward Lebanon. The Honda attempted to stop, but struck the Ford's driver side at a high rate of a speed, trapping its occupant.

Firefighters removed the Ford's roof to extricate the driver, who was transported to Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. Three of the Honda's passengers were evaluated at the scene and refused treatment. No names were available.

Oregon State Police and the Oregon Department of Transportation assisted Lebanon Fire District crews on scene.
