Girl, 14, accused of DUI in I-5 crash

The Associated Press

NAPAVINE — The Washington State Patrol says a 14-year-old Portland girl was driving under the influence when she swerved to avoid a deer on Interstate 5 about 3:30 a.m. Sunday near Napavine, just south of Chehalis.

The minivan rolled and came to rest on its top.

Also in the car were a 16-year-old girl who ran away from home and a 51-year-old Portland man who owns the van. The girls were treated at a hospital for minor injuries. The man declined treatment for a cut on his forehead.

KATU reports it’s unclear how the three are connected.

The 14-year-old faces charges of minor in possession, drunken driving and driving without a license.
