A driver suffered minor injuries Friday morning after his car ran over an embankment near Hathaway Park in Washougal.

The crash was reported at 8:45 a.m. near the park at 799 25th St. The Camas-Washougal Fire Department and Washougal police responded.

Firefighters found a single person inside the vehicle who had minor injuries but was unable to get out of the car, said Camas-Washougal Chief Nick Swinhart.

Firefighters used nearby construction equipment to secure the car and prevent it from sliding down the hill, Swinhart said.

The man was then taken out of the car and sent to the hospital to be evaluated.
