Two people were injured Thursday morning in a two-vehicle collision in Felida.

Clark County sheriff’s deputies and emergency medical personnel responded at 6 a.m. to the 10500 block of Northwest Lakeshore Avenue.

The driver of a 2006 Nissan Sentra, identified as Matthew Northy, 63, of Vancouver, was rescued from his vehicle and taken by ambulance to a local hospital. He suffered serious injuries but is in stable condition, according to a sheriff’s office news release.

The other involved driver, identified as Esther Huizar, 25, of Vancouver, was able to free herself from her 1996 Plymouth Grand Voyager, the sheriff’s office said. She suffered minor injuries and was also taken to a hospital.

Witnesses said the Plymouth was traveling north on Lakeshore Avenue when it struck the Nissan as it attempted a left turn onto Lakeshore from Northwest 105th Street. A witness said the Plymouth appeared to be speeding, the news release states.

Speed appears to be a “significant factor” in the crash, according to the sheriff’s office traffic unit. The investigation is ongoing. No charges have been filed.

Lakeshore Avenue between Northwest 104th and 106th streets was closed for about five hours during the investigation.
