A 60-year-old Vancouver man was taken to an area hospital and was in critical condition after a collision between a motorcycle and a vehicle late Saturday night.

On Saturday (Oct. 29) at 11:36 p.m., the Clark County Sheriff’s Office and Fire/EMS were dispatched to a motor vehicle accident at NE 72nd Ave. and NE 159th St.  Upon arrival, deputies located a male motorcycle rider lying on NE 72nd Ave. with a severe head injury. 

Deputies at the scene determined that Richard Davis, of Vancouver, was traveling northbound on NE 72nd Ave. approaching NE 159th St. on a 1982 Suzuki motorcycle.  Mathew Wells, 34, of Vancouver, was traveling northbound on NE 72nd Ave. behind Davis.  Wells was driving a 2002 Acura sedan.  

Davis slowed his motorcycle as he approached NE 159th St.  Wells attempted to drive around Davis but collided with him.  Wells stopped and rendered aid to Davis until emergency personnel arrived. 

Investigating deputies determined Wells was under the influence of intoxicants.  He was arrested and booked into the Clark County Jail for one count of Vehicular Assault. 

Davis was transported to an area hospital in critical condition.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Homicide Unit is investigating this incident.
