Yacolt resident Ronda Knapp arrested on a charge of vehicular homicide for the collision that claimed the life of Steven Woolsey

After an investigation conducted by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Homicide Unit, Ronda Knapp was arrested on a charge of vehicular homicide and booked into the Clark County Jail Tuesday.

On Feb. 4 at approximately 9:08 p.m., Clark County Sheriff’s deputies responded with Clark County Fire Districts 3 and 13 and with North Country EMS ambulance, to a single vehicle serious injury collision in the 26700 block of NE Lucia Falls Rd. in Yacolt. 

Deputies determined a 2000 Toyota Tacoma was being operated eastbound on NE Lucia Falls Rd by the 48-year-old Knapp and occupied by right front passenger 51-year-old Steven Woolsey, both from Yacolt.  

The Toyota exited the roadway to the south and struck several trees. Knapp and Woolsey had to be extricated from the Toyota by rescue personnel.

Despite lifesaving efforts, Woolsey died at the scene.  Knapp sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to a local hospital for treatment. 

Speed and alcohol were contributing factors in the collision.
