PORT ANGELES — A Port Angeles woman was in satisfactory condition at Olympic Medical Center this afternoon (Friday) after she was injured when the car she was driving left U.S. Highway 101 and went into a ditch.

Jennifer L. Brown, 30, was headed east on Highway 101 near the east Port Angeles Walmart in a dark green 2003 Mazda Protege sedan when the car’s tires went off the roadway to the right, the State Patrol said.

The Mazda continued off the road and into a ditch, the State Patrol said.

Brown was wearing a seat belt, the State Patrol said, and neither drugs nor alcohol was suspected as a factor.

The incident blocked the right lane of Highway 101 near Kolonels Way for about 45 minutes, according to the state Department of Transportation.
