LOWELL, Ore. - A woman is in the hospital with serious injuries after her RV crashed into a jackknifed semi-truck on Oregon's Highway 58 Tuesday afternoon.

The crash occurred around 4 p.m. about 10 miles east of Pleasant Hill.

Oregon State Police says a semi-truck was traveling westbound when the driver lost control of the vehicle for unknown reasons.

"The vehicle jackknifed, rode up the train trestle you can see behind us here, and is now stuck in position. The trailer, upon the crash, swung into the oncoming lane, striking an R.V. that was eastbound," said Sgt. Michael Berland from Oregon State Police. "I've been doing this job about seven years and I have never seen anything like this."

The driver of the RV was taken to the hospital. The driver of the semi-truck was not injured.

Berland says speed may be a factor in the crash.
