ALBANY, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a woman from Scio, Oregon, was hospitalized Saturday with a bullet wound to the left leg.

According to Linn County Sheriff Bruce Riley, 35-year-old Sabrina Hernandez told deputies a semi-automatic handgun accidentally discharged while she and her boyfriend were driving off-road on Snow Peak near Upper Neal Creek. She said it happened while they were checking the tires on her boyfriend’s 1986 Ford pickup.

Two friends four-wheeling in a separate vehicle gave Hernandez a lift home, and she was later taken by ambulance to a Corvallis hospital.

Riley says the woman’s condition is stable and the investigation is not over.
