Three people were injured Saturday in a two-car crash in Camas, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The accident occurred at 5 p.m. on state Highway 500 when a 2002 Volkswagen Jetta driven east by Shelby A. Jamieson, 15, of Vancouver, lost traction on a corner, crossed the center line and struck the front of an oncoming 2010 Ford Focus driven by Brayden J. Meyer, 18, of Camas, according to a WSP bulletin.

Shelby Jamieson was transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver with minor neck and back pain. Her passenger, John Jamieson, 44, of Vancouver was also transported with injuries to the right side of his body.

Both were still being evaluated Saturday night in the hospital’s emergency room, a hospital official said.

Meyer was also transported to PeaceHealth with injuries to his hip and wrist. He was treated and released, an official said.

All three were wearing safety restraints, according to the WSP, which said Shelby Jamieson could face a charge for driving left of the center line.
