Saturday crash on St. John’s Road sends two to the hospital

By , Columbian Innovation Editor

A two-car crash near Northeast 102nd Street and Northeast St. Johns Road Saturday night sent two people to the hospital, one with life-threatening injuries.

At about 7:19 p.m., emergency crews responded to the crash and found one of the vehicles, a 2002 Ford Escape, on its top and pinning the driver underneath.

“The first patient required heavy extrication as his vehicle rolled several times and came to rest on its top. The patient was half out of the vehicle and pinned by the vehicle to the ground,” according to a news release from Vancouver Fire Department.

The second vehicle, a 2016 Chevrolet Corvette, required some extrication after crashing into a brick wall. The driver of the Corvette was sent to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Speed and alcohol are suspected factors in the crash, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit.

The names of the two drivers were not released as of Sunday morning.
