CANYONVILLE, Oregon — State police say a woman driving the wrong way on Interstate 5 in southern Oregon has died in a head-on crash with a tractor-trailer rig.

State police told the Mail Tribune ( they started getting calls Thursday night reporting a white 2011 Mazda MZ 3 driving north in the southbound lanes. Several said they had to swerve to avoid the car.

The car finally hit the oncoming truck a couple miles south of Canyonville, blocking traffic for hours.

The name of the woman was not released because her family had yet to be notified.

The truck driver, 41-year-old Jose Garcias of Compton, California, was taken to a hospital in Roseburg with a broken arm.
