(CARVER, Ore.) - Oregon State Police say they cited a Vancouver, Washington woman for DUII Saturday evening after the car she was driving flipped onto its top on Highway 224 east of Carver, leaving her injured.

OSP Trooper Justin Lane says preliminary information indicates that 46-year old Robyn Renee Thompson's blood alcohol level was more than 4 times the legal .08 limit.

Lane says the crash happened at approximately 6:25 p.m. Thompson's 2008 Honda Civic two-door was eastbound on Highway 224 near milepost 12 when it failed to negotiate a curve.

"The car struck an dirt embankment on the eastbound shoulder, flipped onto its top and slid across the highway before coming to a stop on its top in the westbound lane," Lane said.

Boring Fire Department personnel responded and had to extricate Thompson from the car.

Lane says she was using safety restraints and received minor injuries. She was transported by ambulance to Oregon Health Sciences University for treatment.

Trooper Lane contacted Thompson at the hospital and subsequently cited her for DUII.
