VANCOUVER, Wash. — Firefighters say it is a miracle that nobody was killed when a vehicle with at least nine students from Brush Prairie High School rolled multiple times and crashed onto the shore of Salmon Creek on Thursday afternoon.
Witnesses said the SUV was speeding going 70 mph and driving erratically on Northeast 117th Street near Interstate 5 when it crashed around 1:15pm, hitting a curb and going up onto the sidewalk under the I-5 overpass and rolling down a 50′ embankment.
At least six people were transported to the hospital. None of them appear to have life-threatening injuries. Not everyone was wearing a seat belt.
The Clark County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the crash and charges are possible.
