A Portland woman was injured after the pickup she was driving struck a boat and trailer on state Highway 14 in Camas on Sunday.

The Washington State Patrol said Mark A. Carter, 54, of Vancouver was pulling a boat on a trailer with a 1994 GMC pickup. He was westbound at the Camas slough bridge about noon.

The patrol said the boat trailer disconnected and went into the eastbound lane, where the 2003 Ford F250 pickup hit the boat and trailer. Driver Ioan Galofteanu, 68, of Portland was taken to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center for facial, neck and back injuries, the patrol said. The hospital did not have a record of her on Sunday night.

The boat and trailer were totaled, as was Galofteanu's pickup, the patrol said.

Carter was cited for failure to secure a load.
