A Vancouver man and three La Center residents were injured Sunday in a single-car crash off Interstate 5 in Cowlitz County, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The crash occurred at 5:34 p.m. when Jordan J. Green, 33, began to have a medical emergency while driving his 2018 GMC Yukon south on Interstate 5 at Exit 46, according to a State Patrol bulletin.

The bulletin said Green’s SUV passed through a stop sign at the top of the ramp and onto the southbound onramp to Interstate 5 before going off the right side of the road and rolling several times before going airborne and landing upside-down on a 2003 Dodge Ram pickup and 1984 Hale horse trailer parked at 4930 Pleasant Hill Road.

Green was airlifted to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver. His three passengers, Dianne M. Boles, 57, of La Center, Breanna L. Watson, 28, of La Center and Emerson Green, 5 months, of La Center were transported to St. Johns Medical Center in Longview.

Drugs or alcohol are not believed to have played a role in the crash. All occupants of the Yukon were wearing seat belts, the State Patrol said.
