I-5 rollover crash sends 2 to hospital

A rollover crash involving two vehicles disrupted traffic on Interstate 5 near Ashland Saturday.

At around 2:30 p.m., a Honda Civic was traveling in the southbound lane near milepost 16 when for unknown reasons the female driver's car drifted into the northbound lane and hit a van nearly head-on, according to Oregon State Police trooper Bill Matson.

The van rolled over several times before coming to rest in the freeway.

There was one person in each vehicle and both were transported to Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center in Medford for treatment.

Information about the extent of their injuries was not immediately available.

Traffic was backed up for more than a mile in the northbound lanes as OSP investigated the crash.
