A 14-year-old girl driving a minivan crashed on Interstate 5 in Washington state, and now she's facing charges of driving under the influence and minor in possession.
The crash happened on I-5 northbound three miles south of Napavine on Sunday at 3:30 a.m. Troopers said the girl's minivan crashed off the right side of the road and rolled over, coming to a rest on its top.
There were two passengers in the car, one a 16-year-old girl who was not wearing a seat belt and was injured in the crash. The other passenger was 51-year-old Stephan Hardy, of Portland, who was injured but refused help from paramedics.
Along with the 16-year-old, the teen driver was also taken to Providence Hospital to be treated. Both girls are from Portland. Their conditions are unknown at this time.
FOX 12 tried to reach Hardy for comment at an address listed in Portland, but a woman there refused to comment.
