An Oregon man was injured in a Wednesday morning crash on the Interstate 205 onramp to state Highway 14.

Robert Reaves, 77, of Irrigon, Ore., was driving a Ford Ranger pickup north on the interstate, took the exit for Highway 14 and failed to negotiate the curve. He drove off the roadway and into the ditch, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Reaves was taken to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center, where he was listed in satisfactory condition on Wednesday.

The cause of the crash is under investigation, but Trooper Will Finn said Reaves will be cited.
