Both occupants managed to crawl out of the car. They were spotted waiting for North Lincoln Fire-Rescue to arrive on scene. North Lincoln Fire made sure there were no other people in the car.
Both occupants had bumps and bruises but otherwise they’re fine. No mention was made why the vehicle ran off the road, rolled and landed in a body of water right off the highway. It’s a common occurrence along Highway 18, the coast’s main highway to the Portland area.
