Nine kids escaped from a smashed SUV that sped over a curb, rolled down a 50-foot embankment and came to a rest at the edge of a creek Thursday afternoon under an Interstate 5 overpass, Clark County sheriff’s officials said. Six of the young people were taken to Randall Children’s Hospital in Portland, but sheriff’s officials said none appeared to have life-threatening injuries. All of the occupants scrambled out of the SUV and climbed up to the street. Some of the kids were not wearing seatbelts, according to the sheriff’s office. Authorities did not release their names or ages but described them as “juveniles.” “It is a miracle that no one was killed,” the Clark County Fire District 6 said in a Facebook post. Clark County deputies and firefighters responded around 1:15 p.m. to reports of a crash underneath the Interstate 5 overpass at Northeast 117th Street, officials said.
