A Vancouver woman was injured in a single-car crash Sunday near Yakima.

Michelle Krug, 19, was driving a maroon 2008 Mazda M3 four-door east on Interstate 82 near Selah when she lost control of the vehicle, according to the Washington State Patrol. The car crossed eastbound lanes, traveled onto the shoulder and rolled several times before coming to rest on its wheels. The crash was reported about 11:30 a.m. Krug was injured and taken to Yakima Memorial Hospital, where she was treated and released.

Troopers said that driver inattention caused the crash, and Krug was cited for driving off of the roadway.
