East County Fire & Rescue on Friday afternoon found a wrecked motorcycle at the scene of a traffic accident in Washougal but no driver.

The accident, which was reported just after noon on Southeast Vernon Road near Southeast 357th Avenue, sounded serious, said Mike Carnes, division chief for East County Fire & Rescue.

A woman was initially reported to be lying in the road, according to radio traffic monitored at The Columbian.

“They found a bike in the ditch” but no patient, Carnes said Friday afternoon.
