A 34-year-old woman was taken by ambulance to a hospital Monday morning after she reportedly rolled her car in Brush Prairie.

The woman told dispatchers her car was upside-down in Woodin Creek near the 12300 block of Northeast 169th Street.

“The single occupant spent an unknown amount of time in the car until she was able to get out under her own power and walk to the nearest house,” according to a bulletin from Fire District 3. “The patient was transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center by AMR. The Clark County Sheriff’s Office and the Battle Ground Police Department were also on scene.”

She suffered leg pain and was soaked.

There was a little bit of ice on the road, but Battalion Chief Dave O’Brien wasn’t sure if it contributed to the crash.

“Ice is going to be a factor, I think, for the next two mornings,” O’Brien said.
