Three people escape a single vehicle rollover crash with only minor injuries in Yamhill County on Friday.

Oregon State Police said the crash happened around 3 a.m. on Highway 221 near milepost 10, just south of Wheatland Road.

OSP said the initial investigation revealed a 2014 Audi sedan was traveling northbound on Hwy 221 at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control on a corner.

The car left the roadway, traveled about 600 feet along the ditch line. Then hit a tree, a power pole and a highway sign before coming to rest in the middle of the roadway after rolling several times.

The driver and two passengers were taken to local hospitals for non-life threatening injuries.

OSP said the driver, Jonathan Alcantara Romero, 25, of Dayton, was arrested and taken to the Yamhill County Jail for DUII, assault in the third degree, reckless endangering another person, assault in the fourth degree, criminal mischief in the second degree, and reckless driving.

OSP is continuing to investigate the crash.
