A single-vehicle rollover crash Sunday night in Brush Prairie seriously injured a passenger, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

A 911 caller reported the crash at 7:05 p.m. in the 13600 block of Northeast 144th Avenue.

“Two occupants and three dogs were inside the vehicle, which had come to rest on its top off the roadway. The 911 caller reported that one occupant was partially ejected from the vehicle, a 2010 Honda Civic sedan,” the sheriff’s office said in a news release.

Medics and deputies responded to the scene and helped the two people involved. The driver of the car, identified as 55-year-old Vicky M. Carstensen of Brush Prairie, was removed from the wrecked vehicle; she refused medical treatment, according to the sheriff’s office.

Carstensen cooperated with deputies. No charges have been filed against her.

The passenger, Donald G. Langland, 61, of Vancouver, suffered serious injuries and was taken to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center. A hospital spokeswoman said Wednesday that Langland was in serious condition in the intensive care unit.

The dogs in the car appeared to be uninjured and were released to a friend, deputies said.

A witness reported that the vehicle was traveling east on 144th Street “in the oncoming lane before losing control and rolling over,” the sheriff’s office said.
