VIA GOOGLE MAPS - A campsite on the Interstate 205 off-ramp near Divison Street is shown here in June, 2019. A woman sleeping in a tent near Interstate 205 was injured after a driver lost control and swerved into a campsite, Portland police say.

East Precinct officers responded to the northbound I-205 on-ramp near Southeast Division Street around 4:37 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2, according to a news release.

Officers arrived and learned that a woman was sleeping in a tent in a "grassy area" near the road when she was struck by the driver, who had failed to negotiate a curve, striking a road side and then the tent.

The woman was taken by ambulance to a hospital for treatment of at least one fractured leg. The injuries were not life-threatening, authorities report. Two other people inside the tent were unharmed.

The motorist, 20-year-old Shayla Valdez, was cited for careless driving. Police said Valdez was not driving impaired.
