PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Six people were injured, including two that were airlifted, after a rollover crash in rural Clackamas County after the driver said her Ford Bronco would not slow down.

The crash happened around 7:20 p.m. Saturday on S. Family Camp Road, authorities said.

Tashne West, 18, told deputies she was driving five friends in her family’s 1993 Ford Bronco when it  wouldn’t slow down. She tried pushing the brakes, she said, but they didn’t seem to work. She pulled off onto a gravel road which caused the rollover, officials said in a release.

No one in the Bronco was wearing seat belts and two people were ejected. Everyone in the car was between 16 and 19.

Authorities said a passerby took three of the people to the emergency crews who were on their way to the scene. LifeFlight was used because the location of the crash was so remote.

Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, officials said.
