One woman sustained injuries in a car accident early Wednesday morning on Interstate 205 near Vancouver, according to news reports.
The incident occurred around 1 a.m. when a 22-year-old Portland woman was driving on eastbound Mill Plain Boulevard when she lost control of her vehicle. Her 2007 Ford Focus slid down an embankment, coming to a stop on its top on Interstate 205.
According to the l, the accident was caused by the woman driving too fast for road conditions.
The woman sustained injuries in the crash, including a broken left arm and cuts to her hands and face, according to news reports. She will likely be charged for the collision.
As a Vancouver car accident attorney, I’m saddened to hear about this car accident. I hope this woman is able to fully and quickly recover from her injuries. I urge drivers to always follow the speed limit and remember to slow down in inclement driving weather. Speeding is dangerous not only to yourself, but also other vehicles around you. I’m glad to hear that no one else was injured in this collision.
