Two people were injured early Tuesday morning in a head-on collision with a wrong-way driver on state Highway 14 near Interstate 5 in Vancouver, according to a Washington State Patrol crash memo.

At 5:42 a.m., 18-year-old Wilsonville, Ore., resident Olivia B. Farrior was driving a 2009 Honda CRV east in the westbound lane on Highway 14. The compact SUV struck two westbound vehicles: a 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander driven by 47-year-old Portland resident John Gifford in the left lane and a 2003 Dodge Caravan driven by 59-year-old Portland resident Cecilio Romero Perez in the right lane. Farrior’s Honda spun and came to rest facing west on the right shoulder, according to the State Patrol.

Alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash, according to the State Patrol.

Both Gifford and Romero Perez were injured in the crash and taken to Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center.

The State Patrol is investigating Farrior, who was not injured.
