A 23-year-old Vancouver man was killed in a single-vehicle accident Tuesday.
On Tuesday (Aug. 16) at about 5:18 p.m. Clark County Sheriff’s Office, American Medical Response (AMR) and Clark County Fire District 6 personnel were dispatched to the 2600 block of NE 99th Street for an injury collision.
Responding units found a Clark Public Utilities pole had been struck by a vehicle. The vehicle continued off the roadway, where it rolled over and struck a house. No one was injured in the house.
The driver, Cody L. Allen, was ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced deceased at the scene. Excessive speed is suspected to be a factor in the collision.
