The driver involved in a single-vehicle rollover collision Monday morning was ejected from his vehicle and was listed in critical condition at an area hospital.
On Monday (Aug. 22) at about 9:27 a.m., personnel from the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, American Medical Response (AMR) and Clark-Cowlitz Fire Rescue responded to the intersection of NE 259th Street and NE 72nd Avenue on the report of an injury collision. Multiple 9-1-1 callers reported a single-vehicle rollover collision. The driver had reportedly been ejected.
Responding units located the vehicle, a 2005 Ford Ranger, on its side with extensive damage. The injured driver was on the roadway a short distance away. Medical personnel tended to the driver, who was transported to a local hospital. The driver is not being identified at this time but is reported to be in critical condition.
Preliminary investigation found the driver was northbound on NE 72nd Avenue and failed to negotiate the turn onto NE 259th Street. Excessive speed appears to be a factor in the collision.
The Clark County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit is investigating the collision.
