Deputy was seriously injured in Feb. 22 single-car collision and has now been moved to a rehabilitation facility

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) issued an update on Deputy Drew Kennison, who was seriously injured in a single-car collision Feb. 22. 

“It has been a pretty wild 10 days here at the Sheriff’s Office,’’ read the statement issued Friday (March 3). “I am happy to report that Drew Kennison was released from the hospital yesterday and is now at a rehabilitation facility. He will likely be there for the next couple of weeks. Thank you to everyone at Legacy Emanuel for caring for him so well.

“Drew is really doing amazingly well considering everything and is in really good spirits,’’ the statement read. “His attitude and determination have been inspiring to everyone who has gone to visit him. He has a lot of work ahead of him but he is up to the task and is grateful for all of the support.’’

Kennison, a 14-year veteran of the CCSO, had to be extricated from his vehicle after the serious injury collision. He had surgery the same day and was then transported to a Portland-area hospital. Surgeons were forced to perform a partial amputation of his left leg. Kennison was driving back from training when a falling tree caused the single-vehicle collision on Washougal River Road near Salmon Falls Road in Skamania County.

Members of the CCSO thanked everyone involved in Kennison’s care.

“Thank you so much to everyone involved in Drew’s care and to all the outpouring of support from everyone in our community,’’ the statement read. “So many people have asked what they can do for Drew and his family, so the Deputy Sheriff’s Guild set up a link to donate to help with everything that lies ahead for Drew and his family.’’

That link is Donations For Drew.
