A Washougal woman was killed Wednesday night when she crashed an older model BMW sedan into a tree in Fern Prairie.
The Clark County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday identified the woman as 22-year-old Kaylene N. Christensen.
Deputies and medics were dispatched at 10:32 p.m. to a single-vehicle crash at Northeast 14th Street and 249th Avenue, north of Camas. A caller told 911 that a car had crashed into a large tree, according to a sheriff’s office news release.
Arriving medics found Christensen dead inside the wrecked BMW, the news release says.
“It is apparent that excessive speed is a causing factor in this (crash),” the sheriff’s office said.
