A 25-year-old New Jersey woman died and five others were injured in a head-on crash on Tualatin Valley Highway west of Portland on Saturday night.

At about 7 p.m.. the driver of a 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat was driving west on Tualatin Valley Highway near Northwest 341st Avenue in the Cornelius area when the Dodge crossed over the center median and crashed head-on into a 2003 Honda Accord.

Al Hera Islam, a passenger in the Honda, died at the hospital.
