Two-vehicle crash

A Camas man is in critical condition after, the Washington State Patrol says, he drove a motorcycle 100 mph and crashed into another vehicle.

Skylar F. Sibold, 26, of Camas was riding a 2004 Suzuki GSXR75 south on Northeast 112th Avenue approaching Northeast 18th Street just before 1 a.m. Friday. Sibold reportedly failed to stop at a red light at the intersection and struck an eastbound 2002 Hyundai Accent, WSP reported.

The driver of the Hyundai, Kristen B. Peppers, 17, of Vancouver was reportedly not injured.

Sibold, however, was transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center where hospital staff say he remained in critical condition late Friday.

The state patrol says that excessive speed caused the crash and that Sibold faces a charge of reckless driving.
