Oregon State Police responded to a head-on crash in Hermiston Monday night on North Highway 395 near the Punkin Center intersection. The driver of a mid-size Jeep SUV was northbound on the highway when she looked away from the roadway and nearly struck a vehicle in front of her.

To avoid that vehicle, she swerved into the opposite lane and struck a Honda CR-V head-on. Both drivers were taken to the hospital, as well as three children from the Honda. A spokesperson for Oregon State Police said Tuesday morning she did not know the conditions of any of the people involved and did not release the names of those involved in the accident.
