A Vancouver woman was sent to the hospital early Saturday after her car rolled on Interstate 205 near state Highway 500.

Kimberly Thilavanh, 25, was driving a 1998 Nissan pickup in the right lane of I-205 southbound around 2:28 a.m. when she drifted to the right and struck a concrete barrier, a Washington State Patrol release said. Thilavanh's car spun, rolled once and came to a rest on its wheels facing north.

Thilavanh was transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center with lacerations on her head and face and left shoulder pain.

State patrol said the crash was caused by driver inattention.

Thilavanh was cited for DUI.
