(HILLSBORO, Oregon) - Today, at about 12:30 a.m., 19-year-old Stephanie Curtiss of Rock Creek was driving west on NW West Union Road, just west of NW Cornelius Pass Road. She lost control of the car as she entered a curve with a suggested speed (yellow speed sign) of 35 m.p.h.

The car left the road and entered the yard at 20130 NW West Union Road, damaging shrubs as it passed through the yard. The car then entered the adjacent yard at 20160 NW West Union Road, sheering off two trees and uprooting a third before crashing into the porch. The car then started to roll, striking a parked car in the driveway before hitting a garage door and coming to rest in its roof.

Ms. Curtiss and two adult male passengers were all wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash. They were all able to climb from the wrecked car on their own. All three were transported to St. Vincent’s Hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries. No one else was injured during this crash.

Ms. Curtiss said she tried to avoid a deer in the road and veered into the yard where she lost control of her car. Deputies speculate that she was driving significantly faster than the speed limit (45 MPH). The case is still under investigation and no one has been charged. Alcohol or drug use do not appear to be factors. The homeowners estimated the combined damage at over $10,000.
