A debris field extended along the east side of the road, into a ditch and across the front yard of a residence where the wreckage came to rest. It appeared the vehicle, a GM Acadia, was traveling southbound on Vista Drive when it left the roadway on the east side.

Hoffman said the patient was transported by ambulance to PeaceHealth St Joseph Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
