GRESHAM, Ore. – An 11-year-old girl died Sunday after a rollover crash on the 181st Avenue ramp to westbound Interstate 84.

Yoselin Escobar Vargas, 11, was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Five adults and four children were in the van that crashed, said Sgt. Adam Baker of Gresham police.

The other occupants were taken to hospitals for treatment. Some were released. Names and condition reports of the injured were not available.

The driver cooperated with police, Baker said. Alcohol and drugs do not appear to be factors. Weather or "environmental factors" may have played a part in the crash, he said.

The van will be inspected for safety defects and to determine seat belt use.
