On Friday (Aug. 26) at about 9:49 a.m., personnel from the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, Clark County Fire District 3 and American Medical Response (AMR) were dispatched to the 16000 block of NE 159th Street on the report of a single-vehicle injury collision.
Responding units found a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee in the southern ditch of NE 159th Street. The 17-year-old driver was found next to the vehicle, in the roadway. The driver was transported to a local hospital and was in critical condition at the time of this report.
