A Battle Ground man was killed in a crash late Sunday night on Northeast Lewisville Highway north of Battle Ground.

D’Antai L. Nelson, 20, died at the scene of the two-vehicle crash. The driver of the second vehicle, Larissa M. Matson, 37, also of Battle Ground, was injured and taken to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver, according to a Washington State Patrol crash memo.

Nelson was headed south in a 1998 Chevy Lumina sedan about 11:30 p.m. on state Highway 503/Lewisville Highway near 299th Street, according to the State Patrol. He crossed the centerline into the northbound lane and crashed head-on with a 2016 GMC Acadia driven by Matson.

Both Nelson and Matson were wearing seat belts.

The State Patrol did not know if drugs or alcohol were involved in the crash.

The Washington State Department of Transportation said on Twitter the road was closed for about four hours for the investigation.
