A 32-year-old Hazel Dell man walked away from a rollover crash Tuesday afternoon on Interstate 5.

The man, whose name was not released, was driving northbound in the left lane on I-5 south of Woodland in his Honda CRV. After passing the East Fork Lewis River Bridge, he lost control of the vehicle, swerved over to the right, hit the concrete barrier on the shoulder and rolled, said Battalion Chief Tim Dawdy, spokesman for Clark County Fire & Rescue.

At 1:57 p.m. CCF&R was dispatched to the crash, where they found the driver out of his vehicle and walking around, Dawdy said. As a precaution, the driver was transported to a local hospital.

Two lanes on the interstate were blocked near the accident.
