A Portland woman’s condition has improved after she was critically injured in a rollover accident May 28 on Interstate 205.

Kimberly A. Actkinson, 46, was listed in satisfactory condition Wednesday night at Southwest Washington Medical Center, a nursing supervisor said.

The Washington State Patrol said she was driving a 1996 Jeep Cherokee south on Interstate 205 when she overcorrected during a lane change about a half-mile north of state Highway 14. The Jeep rolled and crossed the freeway median into northbound traffic. She wore no seat belt and was ejected.
