Vancouver, Wash. – On May 28, 2022, at approximately 11:15 p.m., Vancouver Police responded to NW Lower River Rd. for a multi-vehicle collision. The involved vehicles were a Ford F-150, which was pulling a travel trailer, a Kia Soul and an Acura TL.  When officers arrived, they located the travel trailer separated from the Ford pickup and down an embankment, and the Kia wedged underneath the Ford. The Vancouver Fire Department responded and used hydraulic tools to extract trapped occupants from both the Ford and the Kia.  The Acura was discovered down the north embankment with the roof sheared off. The male driver of the Acura was deceased. The occupants of the Ford and the Kia remain hospitalized with serious injuries. The roadway was closed in both directions for several hours due to an environmental biohazard caused by the trailer’s damaged sewage tank. The roadway and surrounding area have since been thoroughly cleaned.

Speed and impairment are believed to be factors in the collision. 

The Vancouver Police Department Traffic Unit is continuing the investigation. No names of the involved parties are being released at this time. Anyone who may have seen the involved vehicles prior to the collision is asked to email the VPD Traffic Unit at: [email protected]
