A 15-year-old girl was flown to a Tri-Cities hospital with serious injuries Friday morning after a single-vehicle rollover on Highway 207 at Bombing Range Road in Morrow County.
Oregon State Police Trooper Jerrad Little did not identify the victim, but said she was the only person in the truck, which rolled three or four times before ending up on its side in a field. Little said the girl was wearing her seatbelt.
Authorities closed the highway for about 45 minutes while the juvenile was loaded into an air ambulance and taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland, Washington. Little did not have an immediate update on her condition.
Little said the girl is from the Heppner area, and was traveling north on the highway before she crashed. The cause of the wreck is under investigation.
