      Portland girl, 14, charged with DUI after crash on I-5 in Wash.

      NAPAVINE, Wash. - A 14-year-old Portland girl was driving under the influence when she crashed a minivan on Interstate 5 near Napavine early Sunday morning, police said.


      A 16-year-old girl and 51-year-old Stephan Hardy of Portland were also in the van when it crashed just after 3:30 a.m., according to Washington State Police spokesman Will Finn. The driver swerved to avoid a deer and lost control of the van.


      The van rolled and came to rest on its top.


      All three were injured in the crash. The two girls were taken to a hospital with minor injuries. Hardy had a gash on his forehead but declined medical aid, Finn said.


      It's unclear how the three are connected. The van is registered in Hardy's name.


      The 16-year-old girl was a runaway, Finn said. Her mother has been notified.


      The 14-year-old driver faces charges of minor in possession, DUI and driving without a license.
