Excessive speed and alcohol are believed to be contributing factors in a fatal rollover vehicle crash Saturday evening north of Camas, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

The crash was reported at 8:08 p.m. in the 3400 block of Northeast Cavitt Road, north of Fern Prairie. There were two people in the vehicle when it rolled over.

The driver was able to get out of the vehicle following the crash and was taken to a local hospital, the sheriff’s office said in a news release. The passenger was pronounced dead at the scene, the news release said.
