Cody L. Allen, 23, was pronounced dead at the scene after his vehicle struck a utility pole
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.
Northeast 99th Street remained closed for several hours to allow Clark Public Utilities to replace the damaged power pole.
The collision is being investigated by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit.
