Vancouver Police investigate fatality collision

January 29, 2024

On January 28, at approximately 6: 50 p.m., Vancouver Police responded to the 13500 block of NE Fourth Plain Blvd. for the report of a vehicle vs. pedestrian collision.  As emergency responders were arriving, bystanders were performing CPR on the victim, however he succumbed to his injuries. 

According to witnesses, the pedestrian, a 67-year-old male, was crossing Fourth Plain from north to south. He was not in a crosswalk.  The driver of a pickup truck traveling eastbound did not see the pedestrian and struck him. The driver stopped, which caused a line of vehicles to back up. A car pulled out of the line of traffic, swerved passed the stopped vehicles, and ran over the victim, who was lying in the roadway, before fleeing the scene. The hit and run vehicle was described as a dark-colored sedan. 

The Vancouver Police Department Traffic Unit is continuing the investigation. 

Nothing further is releasable at this time.
