One adult woman and three children were injured when a driver lost control of an SUV on Interstate 205 near state Highway 500, officials said.

According to a Washington State Patrol bulletin, Maria C. Andaluz-Martinez, 25, of Camas was driving a 2004 Ford Explorer on I-205 near Highway 500 around 11:50 p.m. Sunday when she lost control of the car, hit the barrier on the right side, went across the highway and hit the left guardrail.

Andaluz-Martinez was transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center with a sore back, state patrol said. She was treated and released, hospital spokesman Ken Cole said Monday morning.

She had five passengers in the car when it crashed.

One 10-year-old boy in the car had a possible broken nose and was taken to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center. A 6-year-old boy and 4-year-old boy reported sore heads but weren't transported.

Adimir Perez Romero, 25, of Camas and a 3-year-old boy were uninjured in the crash.

Names of the children aren't available.

The crash was caused by inattention, state patrol said.

Andaluz-Martinez was cited for speeding.
