On 2/2/2020 at about 7:35 pm EMS personnel and CCSO deputies responded to the 38000 block of NW Lakeshore Drive in Woodland for a report of a person struck by a vehicle.  Upon arrival, EMS personned discovered a critically injured male lying in the roadway, and the two occupants of the vehicle that had struck him.  He was transported to an area hospital where he remains in critical condition.

The 19 year old male driver and 17 year old female passenger stayed on scene to assist deputies and the CCSO Traffic Unit in the investigation.  Based on injuries to the male, roadway evidence, and the vehicle occupants' statements, the vehicle had been traveling south on NW Lakeshore Drive and the male pedestrian stepped into the path of the vehicle. The pedestrian was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black slacks. 

There is no indication that the driver of the vehicle was impaired at the time of the collision, and no citations have been issued.

The injured male has yet to be identified, and is described as a caucasian male adult, appearing 18-24 years old, about 6-02 and slender build.  The male has medium length brown hair, and was carrying a black backpack with skateboard parts inside.  Traffic detectives also learned that several civilians may have been on-scene prior to CCSO arrival and would like to obtain any statements from persons who may have witnessed the collision.

The lead detective in this incident is Ryan Preston. Any investigative tips can be directed to him at yan.Preston@clark.wa.gov">Ryan.Preston@clark.wa.gov
