Ileta Simonov Arrested after Fatal DUI Crash near Northeast 132nd Street

 
VANCOUVER, WA (November 21, 2018) – A man was killed late Wednesday evening following a pedestrian crash near Northeast 132nd Street. The victim was later identified as 48-year-old Elvis Keplinger. His city of residence was not immediately provided.
 
According to the Vancouver Police Department, the incident happened in the 13100 block of Northeast 28th Street, at about 10:45 PM. A man was jumping in and out of traffic when he was struck by a westbound vehicle.
 
Keplinger was transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center after suffering severe head trauma, brain bleeding, a broken right leg, and fractured vertebrae. Unfortunately, he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead hours after the incident.
 
The driver of the vehicle, later identified as 23-year-old Ileta Simonov of Hawaii, was arrested and booked into jail for second-degree vehicular assault. After Keplinger’s death, her charges were upgraded to vehicular homicide.
 
Investigators believe that alcohol played a role in the fatal incident. An investigation is ongoing to verify the events that led to the fatal collision and to identify other possible contributing factors. Additional information will be released once it becomes available.
