Drivers in Camas crash named




Camas police on Tuesday identified two drivers involved in a rear-end crash Monday evening.

Police Sgt. Scot Boyles said Tracy Vargo, 44, was waiting for traffic to clear on Sixth Avenue and Northwest Fargo Street when she was rear-ended by a Chevy Tahoe driven by Jennifer Mock, 35.

A 6-year-old and 10-year-old from Vargo’s Subaru Forester were sent to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center with abdominal pain. Mock’s passenger, a 10-year-old girl, was also sent to the hospital with abdomen pain, Boyles said. The children were examined as a precaution, Boyles said.

Both drivers were uninjured.

Three lanes of traffic were blocked for more than an hour while emergency responders worked at the scene. The westbound lane was rerouted to Northwest Seventh Avenue around the accident. Both vehicles were heavily damaged and were towed from the scene.

Mock will be cited for following too close, police said.

She and her daughter, Paityn Mock, were featured in a Columbian story last week. Paityn was home alone when burglars broke into her home. She hid, called 911 and escaped injury.
