WASHINGTON CO., Ore. (KOIN) — A Portland man was arrested for DUII after he rolled his vehicle in rural Washington County Saturday night, officials said.

Around 11:15 p.m. deputies were called to a SW Tongue Lane on reports of a truck on fire, Washington County Sheriff’s Office said. Upon their arrival, authorities discovered a 2004 Toyota Tacoma fully engulfed in flames.

An investigation revealed the driver, 32-year-old Daniel Donovan, failed to negotiate a sharp turn and rolled his truck off the roadway, officials said. He was able to exit the truck and sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

Deputies determined Donovan was driving under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.

He was taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries and is expected to appear in a later court date for DUII charges.
