A rollover accident on state Highway 14 about 4 p.m. Wednesday resulted in at least one injury and jammed commuter traffic.

The accident was on the eastbound highway between Interstate 205 and Southeast 164th Avenue, near where three lanes narrow to two.

The vehicle was described as a white SUV, and was on its top in the ditch, according to emergency radio traffic monitored at The Columbian.

There were four occupants, including two children in car seats. All were shaken up, and one person may have suffered serious trauma. The children were not severely injured.

Two ambulances, fire apparatus and the Washington State Patrol were called to the scene, causing traffic to back up on Highway 14 and also on Interstate 205 northbound on the Glenn Jackson Bridge.

No other details were available.
