Both drivers in a two-vehicle crash were injured early Monday morning just outside the Battle Ground city limits.

Fire personnel, EMS and Clark County sheriff’s deputies responded at 6:43 a.m. to the intersection of Northeast 199th Street and Northeast 167th Avenue, where callers reported a crash with serious injuries, according to a sheriff’s office news release.

Two vehicles were off the side of the road at the intersection.

First responders administered aid to a 17-year-old boy, who was unconscious and suffered severe injuries, deputies said. A 53-year-old woman was conscious and alert. Both drivers were taken to an area hospital. Their identities were not released, pending notification of relatives.

Witnesses reported an orange Mazda sedan, driven by the woman, was eastbound on Northeast 199th Street and failed to stop for the stop sign at the intersection. The Mazda collided in the intersection with a blue Volkswagen sedan, driven by the boy, that was southbound.

“Severe damage to the vehicles indicates that the Mazda was traveling at a sustained speed at the time of the collision,” the news release reads. “This intersection is located in a rural area of Clark County, just outside of the Battle Ground city limits. It is controlled from four directions by stop signs and red flashing lights.”

The sheriff’s office traffic unit is investigating the crash. Northeast 199th Street at Northeast 167th Avenue was closed for the investigation.
