18-Year-Old Fatally Struck by Vehicle at North Morrison Road
VANCOUVER, WA (September 30, 2018) – An 18-year-old woman was killed in a pedestrian collision on Mill Plain Boulevard, late Sunday afternoon. The deceased victim was identified as 18-year-old Amy Walker.
According to reports from the Washington State Patrol, Walker was crossing the street outside of a designated crosswalk with a group of girls when she was hit by a vehicle. The collision took place near North Morrison Road, near 4:00 PM.
The victim’s grandmother, Linda Evans, said the victim was with her younger sister and two close friends when she was hit. They were trying to catch a bus across the street and were on their way to the local mall. Her friends and sister reported that Walker did not see the car coming.
Due to the impact of the collision, the young woman suffered critical injuries. Unfortunately, she succumbed to her injuries and was later pronounced dead. No other injuries were reported in the incident. The driver who hit the victim remained at the scene and cooperated with police investigators.
Both the eastbound and westbound lanes of E Mill Plain were closed at N Morrison for several hours, while officers investigated and crews cleared the crash site. No further information about the fatal crash was immediately released, as the investigation continues.
