PORTLAND, Ore. -- Portland police say a wrong-way truck driver crashed into a car on the Interstate 205 bridge.
The driver of the car was taken to a Vancouver hospital. Police say her injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.
The truck driver was arrested on charges of drunken driving, criminal mischief and reckless driving. He was identified as 49-year-old Kenneth Eugene Burgess.
The Multnomah County sheriff's office started receiving reports about 4:20 a.m. Monday of the tractor-trailer going the wrong way on Interstate 84.
Deputies pursued the truck northbound on the I-205 bridge in the southbound lanes. The truck was nearly on the Washington side when it collided with the car.
The crash reduced southbound traffic to one lane during the investigation and cleanup.
