A man was arrested Wednesday afternoon on suspicion of driving under the influence of intoxicants after crashing the pickup truck he was driving.

At 2:39 p.m. a man driving a white Ford Ranger took the Fourth Plain exit from Interstate 5 Southbound. The pickup struck the median on the left; the vehicle turned and rolled onto the driver’s side, landing in the right lane, said Trooper Will Finn, spokesman for the Washington State Patrol.

The driver, who suffered minor injuries, was transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center.

The right lane of the ramp is closed while crews tow the pickup.
