Collision took place Thursday evening near Brush Prairie
A collision near Brush Prairie Thursday night left the adult male operator of a motorcycle deceased, according to a report from the Clark County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO).
On Thursday (June 1) at about 9:26 p.m., CCSO, Clark County Fire District 3, Vancouver Fire Department and American Medical Response (AMR) personnel responded to the 13900 block of NE 172nd Ave. to a report of a collision involving a motorcycle and a car.
First responders arrived to find an adult male occupant of a Volkswagen sedan with serious injuries and requiring extrication. The driver of the Volkswagen was transported to an area hospital. The operator of the motorcycle was not immediately located, but after searching the area, a deceased adult male was located in the nearby brush.
The initial investigation indicates the offroad style motorcycle was traveling south on NE 172nd Ave. when it was struck by the Volkswagen traveling north on NE 172nd Ave. while passing another vehicle. The Volkswagen then struck a power pole.
Based on initial information, it appears speed and alcohol may have been contributing factors in the collision, according to the CCSO report.
The Clark County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit is investigating this collision. Names of those involved have yet to be released.
