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. 

Three people in the truck were injured, with a man in his 50s sent by ambulance to the hospital. 

Northbound Oracle Road at the intersection was closed for more than two hours, with traffic being diverted, Oro Valley Police Lt. Kara Riley said.

Riley said she expected Oracle to reopen around 5 p.m. after cleanup and investigation.
