The woman was driving a Ford northbound on Old River Road, approaching County Road 117 just before 7:30 a.m. A 31-year-old Woodland man driving a Chevrolet south on Old River Road came to a stop, then attempted to turn left onto County Road 117. There the Chevrolet collided with the Ford, according to a CHP news release.

The woman was taken to UC Davis Medical Center. The man was unhurt, the CHP reported.

The accident is being investigated. The CHP said alcohol or drugs do not appear to be a factor.
