One killed in head-on collision in Camas

One person was killed and another seriously injured in a two-vehicle head-on collision Sunday in Camas.

Northwest Lake Road was closed just after 4:30 p.m. when a silver vehicle and a black sedan collided.

The lone occupant of the silver vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene, according to emergency scanner traffic monitored by The Columbian.

One person in the black sedan was transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in critical condition. Four other occupants in that vehicle where taken to the hospital with non-critical injuries.

The crash occurred near Heritage Park toward the southeast end of Lacamas Lake. Traffic from the northwest was diverted onto Northwest Lacamas Drive.

Emergency crews from the Camas-Washougal Fire Department responded to the scene, along with officers from the Camas Police Department. First responders were prepared to perform a heavy extrication due to the condition of the vehicles, but that wasn’t necessary.

No details on contributing causes to the crash or the identities of the victims were available Sunday evening.
