One woman was hurt after being trapped when the vehicle she was riding in went down an embankment next to Interstate Five early Friday morning.
A report from Oregon State Police says at about 5:00 a.m. a sedan was headed south on the freeway traveling down the south side of Roberts Mountain. The report says the car was starting to pass a semi truck as they negotiated the left curve at the bottom of the hill. The driver of the car swerved, believing that the semi had veered into his lane. The car spun around striking the center barrier then crossed to the west side of the shoulder. The report says the car then jumped on top of the concrete barrier then went over and down an embankment finally stopping on its top.
The driver sustained minor injuries but the 32 year old passenger could not get out of the car. After being extricated she was taken to Mercy Medical where it was discovered that she had a broken neck, according to the report.
