By , Columbian Breaking News Reporter

A Vancouver man seriously injured in a motorcycle crash Sunday in Camas died on Monday, police said.

Christopher D. Lewis, 28, of Vancouver, was taken to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center following the crash, reported at 8 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of Northwest Brady Road and Northwest 16th Avenue, according to the Camas Police Department.

The crash remains under investigation, but Camas police said that Lewis was the rider of a motorcycle that witnesses said ran a stop sign.

Police said that the driver of the other involved vehicle, Michaela Lenard, 18, of Camas stayed on scene and cooperated with officers.

The crash remains under investigation, though Camas police spokesman Sgt. Scot Boyles said that at this point, the agency is not looking at charging Lenard.

“Every indication that we had was that the other driver was not at fault,” Boyles said. “She was cooperative and there are no signs that she did anything other than follow the traffic laws.”
