PORT ANGELES — A 61-year-old woman was taken to Olympic Medical Center for minor injuries after a single-vehicle wreck Saturday evening.

At about 5:40 p.m., the woman drove off the road heading east in the 2000 block of Edgewood Drive and hit a telephone pole, according to Assistant Chief Mike DeRousie of Clallam Fire District No. 2.
