A woman went to a hospital to have her injuries evaluated after a rollover accident just north of Hockinson Friday morning.

The accident was reported at 7:52 a.m. in the 17400 block of Northeast 182nd Avenue, about ¾ of a mile north of Hockinson Heights Elementary.

According to a news release from Clark County Fire District 3, the driver lost control, and the car rolled several times before coming to rest on its top in the ditch. Firefighters stabilized the vehicle, then extricated the trapped driver.

The driver, a woman, did not appear to have suffered any life-threatening injuries. She was treated at the scene and taken to a hospital. Her name was not available.

The accident will be investigated by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office. Clark County Fire and Rescue and AMR paramedics also assisted at the scene.

It’s not known what caused the accident; however, some local roads were frosty Friday morning after clear skies caused temperatures to drop overnight.
