On Saturday (June 24) at about 1:24 a.m. a witness called 9-1-1 to report a pedestrian was hit by a vehicle on SE 412th Ave. near the intersection with NE Washougal River Road in Clark County.
A vehicle had crashed into a tree and after the occupant of the vehicle exited, he was hit by another vehicle. The second vehicle then fled the scene. First responders arrived and provided medical aid to the victim before he was transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center with significant injuries.
