Four people were injured, one ejected from the vehicle, in a single-car rollover crash Thursday night on Interstate 5.

The crash occurred on the southbound side of the freeway near milepost 158 when a Toyota Tundra pickup left the freeway, struck an embankment and rolled multiple times before coming to rest on the driver's side, blocking one lane of traffic.

One person was ejected from the vehicle, according to the Oregon State Police, and a total of four were transported by ambulance to an undisclosed hospital. 

The driver was identified as 26-year-old Roman Garcia Vasquez, but OSP did not specify if the driver was one of the four injured occupants. Names of the injured were not available.

The Oregon Department of Transportation assisted OSP with traffic control while the crash was cleared.
