Vancouver resident Avery J. Marshall, 28, was pronounced dead at the scene Friday
A Vancouver man was killed in a collision Friday in Hazel Dell when the motorcycle he was operating collided with a sport utility vehicle.
On Friday (July 15) at about 7:17 p.m., members of the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, Clark County Fire District 6, and American Medical Response were dispatched to the intersection of NE 99th St and NE 21st Place for a motorcycle versus vehicle injury collision.
First responders located a 2005 Yamaha YZFR motorcycle and its operator down in the eastbound lanes of NE 99th St. Preliminary scene evidence and witness statements suggest the Yamaha motorcycle was traveling eastbound on NE 99th St from the 1900 block when it collided with a 2015 Toyota Highlander utility vehicle, driven by Vancouver resident Sandra Barajas Martinez, 42 who attempted to turn from northbound NE 21st Place to westbound NE 99th St.
The motorcycle operator, identified as 28-year-old Avery J. Marshall of Vancouver, was pronounced deceased at the scene. Martinez was cooperative with investigators and was later released from the scene.
Excessive speed is believed to be a contributing factor at this time. The Clark County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit responded and will continue the investigation.
