Head-on collision Sunday near Woodland claims the life of Amboy resident

Lisa Griffth, 51, was killed in the two-vehicle collision with a Ridgefield resident

CLARK COUNTY — On Sunday (Sept. 15) at 3:53 p.m., North Country EMS and Clark County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to a two-vehicle head-on collision in the 2500 block of NE Cedar Creek Road.  The collision was located in north Clark County, about 5 miles east of Woodland. 

Upon arrival, first responders located two vehicles blocking the roadway.  Initial assessment revealed that the driver of one vehicle was deceased.

Based on scene evidence and a statement by the other involved driver, deputies learned the following:

Lisa Griffith, age 51 and a resident of the Amboy area, was driving westbound on NE Cedar Creek Road in a 2002 Honda Civic.  Daniel Heup, age 54 and a Ridgefield resident, was driving eastbound on NE Cedar Creek Road in a 2016 Ford F350 pickup. Scene evidence corroborates Heup’s statement that the Civic crossed over the centerline in a shallow curve and collided with the F350 head-on in the eastbound lane. 

Griffith was killed in the collision.  Heup was transported to an area hospital with minor injuries.  Heup has been very cooperative with the investigation.

The CCSO Traffic Unit is investigating this collision, and is looking into all proximate causes to the collision, as well as an explanation as to why Griffith crossed the centerline of the roadway.
