VANCOUVER — The Clark County Sheriff’s Office has identified the driver that was killed in a Tuesday accident in Vancouver.

The deceased driver was identified as Bryan A. Martin III, age 62.  Martin was a resident of Battle Ground. He was operating his 2019 Buick Enclave at the time of the collision.  No other persons were injured.

At 5:58 p.m. Tuesday (Nov. 12), Clark County Sheriff’s Office deputies and Vancouver Fire Department personnel were dispatched to a single vehicle collision in the 10200 block of NE 72nd Avenue in Vancouver.  The four-lane roadway has a 45 mph speed limit, and is heavily traveled during that time of day.

Upon arrival, first responders discovered a power pole had been struck, and live electrical lines were down across the entire roadway. Martin had been traveling in his vehicle south on NE 72nd Avenue and had driven off the west side of the roadway, collided with two trees and a power pole, and traveled through a cyclone fence at 10200 NE 72nd Ave., Montage Dog and Cat Boarding.

Martin was the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle. He was unconscious and unresponsive at the scene.  Lifesaving efforts were undertaken at the scene and while enroute to the hospital, Martin was pronounced dead at the hospital.  The CCSO Traffic Unit is investigating causes to this collision. 

A vehicle traveling northbound was damaged by powerline guywires as they fell across the roadway.  No additional injuries were reported.
