BEAVERTON, Ore. (AP) — A collision near Beaverton, Ore., involving a minivan and an ambulance has left the van driver hospitalized in critical condition. However, the ambulance paramedics and their 90-year-old patient fared much better.

Washington County sheriff's Sgt. David Thompson says 51-year-old Beth Caulfield of Beaverton was reported in critical condition Thursday night at a Portland-area hospital.

He says two Newberg Fire Department firefighter-paramedics were treated at a hospital and released after the Thursday afternoon crash. Thompson says 90-year-old Mary Schollenberg was being transported in the ambulance for a broken hip. She did not suffer any major injuries from the crash.
