A vehicle drove off of Interstate 5 and landed on its roof in the parking lot of a Vancouver business near the 78th Street exit, according to a Washington State Patrol spokesman.

Preliminary information from the trooper suggests the black sedan left the roadway, went airborne and struck a Dr. Roof Inc. box truck before ending up on its roof.

The single occupant, an unidentified woman, got out of the vehicle on her own, said trooper Will Finn in a tweet. She suffered minor injuries and was taken to an area hospital, he said.

Troopers said speed appears to be a contributing factor in the crash.

There has been no impact to traffic on the I-5.
