A Vancouver woman was sent to a hospital after her car went off state Highway 14 near Camas Wednesday morning, officials said.

Lindsay Peters, 25, was driving a 1999 Chevrolet Malibu eastbound on state Highway 14 near the Sixth Avenue exit to Camas just before 7 a.m. when she had a seizure, a Washington State Patrol bulletin said.

According to the bulletin, her car left the road and came to a rest in blackberry bushes.

Peters had another seizure when her car came to a stop and was sent to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center as a precaution, state patrol said.

Wednesday night, a hospital employee said Peters was treated and released.

Two engines with the Vancouver Fire Department and Camas Police also responded to the crash.
