MCMINNVILLE, Ore. -- Oregon State Police say the driver of a car was killed and a 10-year-old girl in his car was seriously injured in a collision Tuesday night on Highway 18 about two miles east of McMinnville.

Troopers say the car crossed the centerline and collided head-on with the truck pulling two trailers.

The 30-year-old car driver died at the scene. The girl was taken to Willamette Valley Medical Center. The truck driver also was taken to the hospital to be treated for an injury.

The truck leaked diesel fuel that had to be cleaned up with the help of firefighters. The highway reopened about 5:30 a.m. Wednesday.
