PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A driver crashed into the Clackamas River overnight, according to fire officials.
While driving on Clackamas Drive in Oregon City just past midnight on Friday, a woman reportedly drove off the ledge and crashed down an embankment. Her car landed with its rear bumper atop a log in the Clackamas River. Video shows she just missed the guardrail, which is new in that area.
The Swift Water Rescue Team arrived at the scene quickly and utilized a new boat to reach the woman. Once she was in the boat, the team transported her to Riverside park where an ambulance was waiting.
The woman was sent to a hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
The car was pulled out of the river several hours later.
