PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Two drivers were injured early Thursday morning as a Plymouth minivan slammed into a Nissan on NW Lakeshore Avenue in Vancouver
Witnesses said the Plymouth, driven by 25-year-old Esther Huizar, was headed north. The Nissan stopped at a stop sign on NW 105th before starting a left turn, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office said.
The minivan broadsided the Nissan, injuring driver Matthew Northy. The 63-year-old Vancouver resident was taken to a hospital with serious injuries.
