TOLEDO, Ore. -- Six people were injured, including two young children when their truck rolled and crashed along Highway 20 east of Toledo Tuesday night.

The pickup's six occupants were all transported by ambulance to Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital for treatment of injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening.

The adults were identified as Linh Lien, 55; Hector Lopez, 31; and, Elvia Zarate, 28, all of Newport. The two kids' names have not been released.
