Four young adults from Vancouver were injured Sunday in a single-car rollover on Interstate 5 in northern California, officials said.
Brian Teh-Shiun Jeng, 19, of Vancouver was driving a 2004 Kia sedan south on I-5 north of Weed, Calif., around 11:30 a.m. Sunday when the car left the road, overturned and ejected two people, said Officer Joe Gardner with California Highway Patrol.
Jeng was taken to Mercy Medical Center Mount Shasta with moderate injuries, Gardner said. He was treated and released.
Passengers Kayla S. Vera, 17, and Gregory Ryan, 17, also received hospital care for minor and moderate injuries, respectively, and were released.
Passenger Amanda Lathim, 18, was sent to Mercy Medical Center in Redding with “major injuries,” Gardner said. She was in critical condition Monday night, a hospital official said.
