ORO VALLEY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A woman in her 60s was helicoptered to the hospital Sunday after a two-vehicle accident on Oracle Road and Pusch View Lane.

The woman, driving a Volvo passenger car, and a truck collided around 2 p.m., Golder Ranch Fire Capt. Josh Hurguy said.

The women's injuries initially sent her in and out of consciousness, he said.
