News Release
Motorcyclists critically injured in two separate Sunday collisions *DATE CORRECTION* - 07/20/21


Apologies, the below release reflects the correct date.  Special thanks to Sgt Waddell.


On 7/18/2021 at 3:32pm CCSO Deputies and EMS Personnel responded to a collision on NE 10th Avenue and NE 189th Street in Ridgefield.  Callers to 911 reported that a motorcycle and a vehicle had collided at the intersection.  CCSO Traffic Detective Patrick Spak was working and responded to the call with other CCSO deputies. 

Upon arrival, it was determined that the driver of the involved vehicle, a 2003 Subaru Forester, made a left turn onto NE 189th Street directly in the path of a southbound motorcycle, causing the motorcycle to collide with the vehicle.  The motorcyclist suffered significant injuries and was transported to an area hospital.

Scene evidence and helpful video footage from a witness assisted in determining that the driver of the Subaru Forester failed to yield to the motorcyclist when turning left. 

The driver of the Subaru was identified as Jeremiah Cunningham, age 35 of Woodland.  The driver of the motorcycle, a 1996 Suzuki D6E, was identified as Michael Schefter, age 67 of Portland, OR. 

Cunningham was cooperative with the law enforcement investigation and did not exhibit signs of impairment.  No arrests have been made at this point; however, the investigation is continuing.


Also On 7/18/2021 at 10:00pm CCSO Deputies and EMS Personnel responded to Hockinson Meadows County Park, 10905 NE 172nd Avenue in Hockinson.   The 911 caller reported a collision in a parking lot of the park involving a motorcycle and a vehicle. 

Upon arrival, deputies learned that a group of young adults had been congregating in the park, and one of the females in the group had asked to drive a male friendís motorcycle,   The female reportedly got onto the motorcycle and accelerated rapidly through the parking lot, striking a parked car.  The female, who was not wearing a helmet, was ejected from the motorcycle and suffered multiple significant injuries.  Yekaterina Andriuschenko, age 20 of Vancouver was transported to an area hospital.  The CCSO Traffic Unit responded to the collision and is continuing to investigate this incident.  Andriuschenko is a resident of Vancouver.
