Crash kills 29-year-old Vancouver man

State patrol releases names in Saturday crash

By , Columbian Features Editor

Washington State Patrol early today released the names of drivers involved in Saturday evening’s fatal head-on crash near Northeast 58th Street and Northeast Fourth Plain Boulevard.

Trygve O. Blixt, 29, of Vancouver was driving a Kawasaki motorcycle too fast westbound on Fourth Plain (also known as state Highway 500 in that spot), crossed the centerline and collided with a Honda Civic driven by 63-year-old Genoveva Ollervides of Camas at about 6:40 p.m. Saturday, according to the state patrol.

First responders pronounced Blixt dead at the scene. Ollervides was not injured.

Blixt and his wife have a young son and were expecting another child soon, according to a GoFundMe page created in his name. The page indicates that he was driving after attending a baby shower.

“Trygve was always the life of the party and was universally loved,” the GoFundMe page reads. “He loved life, he loved his family and he left us way too soon.”
