PORTLAND, Ore. —

Portland police say a wrong-way truck driver crashed into a car on the I-205 bridge.

The driver of the car is at Southwest Washington Medical Center in Vancouver. Police say her injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.

The truck driver has been detained by police who believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.

The Multnomah County sheriff's office started receiving reports about 4:20 a.m. Monday of the tractor-trailer driving the wrong way on I-84. Deputies were pursing the truck as it continued northbound on the I-205 bridge in the southbound lanes. The truck was nearly on the Washington side when it collided with the car.

The crash reduced southbound traffic to one lane during the investigation and cleanup.
