A flipped minivan blocked two lanes of East Mill Plain Boulevard in downtown Vancouver on Tuesday morning, but no one was injured.

A crash was reported just after 6:30 a.m. at Mill Plain and C Street, according to emergency dispatch logs. The crash appeared to be between the minivan and a white sedan.

Vancouver police were on scene about 7 a.m. directing traffic around the crash as tow truck crews worked to right the van.

Call notes said AMR ambulances weren’t needed, said Kim Kapp, Vancouver police spokeswoman. She said police requested two tow trucks and a street sweeper to clean debris.

Vancouver police Officer Missy Skeeter declined to release the name of the driver. Alcohol did not appear to be involved, Skeeter said.
