Two Longview women were taken to St. John Medical Center on Wednesday following a wreck in which their vehicle rolled over and struck a tree along 42nd Avenue, according to Longview police.

Around 2:30 p.m., Linda Sims, 68, was northbound on 42nd Avenue near Ocean Beach Highway when she lost control of her Toyota Highland, Longview Police Officer Erik Hendrickson said.

Traffic on 42nd Avenue was blocked for about 20 minutes while Longview firefighters worked to get Sims and her passenger, Pauline Taylor, 87, out. Sims and Taylor were taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries, according to Hendrickson.

They were treated and released later in the evening.

    "subieman": I'm glad they weren't seriously injured. My question is, why are there so many rollovers as of late? For as long as I have been driving, I have been in two collisions (both times, "T-boned" by drivers who ran their red lights, bless their distracted little hearts)--but never a rollover! Last year, I was "bumped" by a car as I was waiting in the Ocean Beach Starbuck's drive-thru. A gal behind me, yakking on her cell phone, wedged her car's front bumper under my truck's rear bumper...

    Take away their driving privileges at 68? That's a bit extreme. The 87 year old was a passenger, not driving. There are far more accidents involving people under 40 than those in their 60s. Accidents happen.
