Police respond to a rollover accident in the northbound lanes of Interstate 5 near milepost 124 in Roseburg that was reported shortly before 9 a.m. on Wednesday.

A 19-year-old man was injured after flipping his car on the northbound lanes of Interstate 5 near the West Harvard Avenue on-ramp Wednesday morning.

Cody James Oleachea, 19, sustained non-life-threatening injuries, according to police, and was taken to CHI Mercy Medical Center where he is was listed in good condition.

Oleachea was driving north on I-5 shortly before 9 a.m. when he allegedly lost control of his vehicle — a white, four-door sedan — on the wet road near milepost 124.

His vehicle slid into the concrete barrier, across the right shoulder of the roadway and rolled several times before stopping on the right-hand, northbound lane, according to police.

Crews from the Oregon Department of Transportation, the Roseburg Police Department and the Roseburg Fire Department assisted state police at the scene. Troopers said Oleachea was issued a warning for failing to drive within a lane.
