Oregon State Police are investigating the cause of a Monday morning car crash east of Carver that sent one Tigard woman to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Kimberly Ross, 40, was driving westbound on Highway 224 near milepost 13, at about 7:38 a.m., when she failed to safely negotiate a curve in the road, police said.

Ross’ car drove off the road, up an embankment and struck a large rock. The car rolled once and landed on its wheels across the highway, said Oregon State Trooper Tyler Bechtel.

Ross was wearing a seatbelt, and the car’s airbags were deployed, Bechtel said.

Ross was taken to Oregon Health & Science University hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Bechtel added.

The highway was closed for about an hour while Clackamas Fire District No. 1, state police and Oregon Department of Transportation crews were on the scene.
