July 24, 2013 07:25This morning, Wednesday July 24, 2013, at 5:50 a.m., North Precinct officers responded to the report of a rollover crash in the 15800 block of Northeast Marine Drive.
Officers and medical personnel arrived and contacted the two drivers. Preliminary information indicates that the vehicle traveling eastbound on Marine Drive crossed over the center line and sideswiped a westbound vehicle, which swerved right and rolled down the embankment towards the Columbia River. The vehicle landed on a bike path not the water.
The driver of the rolled-over car was transported to a Portland hospital for treatment. Her injuries are not expected to be life-threatening.
The driver of the eastbound vehicle remained at the scene and has cooperated with investigators. Neither alcohol or distracted driving appear to be factors in this crash.
