Ethan Province has been charged with Vehicular Homicide and Vehicular Assault for his involvement in the accident that claimed the life of Francine Wohl
A driver involved in a fatal two-car collision in November in Camas has been charged with Vehicular Homicide and Vehicular Assault.
On Nov. 5, 2020, at 11:35 a.m., officers from the Camas Police Department (CPD) responded to the 600 block of NW Lake Road for a report of a two-vehicle head-on traffic collision. When they arrived at the scene, officers observed the two involved vehicles were heavily damaged and there were four people involved.
It was determined that a 2021 BMW X3M, being driven by Ethan Province, was traveling northwest on NW Lake Road when it crossed into the oncoming lane and collided head-on with the 2020 Kia Sportage being driven southeast by Marisa Silva. The investigation showed that Province was driving at an excessive speed at the time of the collision.
Silva’s mother, Francine Wohl, was in the passenger seat of the Kia and was critically injured. She later died at an area hospital from her injuries.
Bogdan Valcu was the passenger in the BMW. He and Silva had extensive internal and/or external injuries as a result of the collision. Province sustained minor injuries as well.
Camas Police were assisted by members of the Clark County Traffic Homicide Unit.
At this time, the investigation is complete and Province was booked into the Clark County Jail for one count of Vehicular Homicide and two counts of Vehicular Assault.
