Three people were injured when a vehicle flipped onto its top on Highway 217 on Thursday evening, according to Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue.

The crash shut down the southbound lanes of the highway at the 72nd Avenue exit for a short time, but they have since been reopened. Tigard police said three cars collided near the exit and one of them rolled over.

Firefighters had to get one person out of the vehicle that flipped over. That person and two others were taken to the hospital.

It was not immediately known how badly they were hurt.
