At about 12:50 p.m., the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said they received multiple 911 calls about a crash near the 12000 block of South Dart Road.

According to the sheriff’s office, callers reported that a vehicle had left the road and rolled several times.

One of the passengers, a 20-year-old woman from Michigan, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver, an 18-year-old man from Molalla, and the other passenger, a 21-year-old man also from Molalla, were both taken to Portland-area hospitals where they are being treated for their injuries.

Deputies said the cause of the crash is under investigation, but initial reports indicated that speed may have been a contributing factor.
