Michael Rowe and Susan Smith Dead, Dominic Payne and Sunie Waterhouse Uninjured in Highway 503 Accident at Northeast 269th Street

 
BATTLE GROUND, WA (May 29, 2019) –Two people died in a motorcycle crash Sunday afternoon on Highway 503 at Northeast 269th Street.
 
According to Washington State Patrol, the victims killed in the 4 p.m. crash have been identified as 71-year-old Michael P. Rowe and 68-year-old Susan L. Smith – both from Vancouver.
 
According to a news release, as Rowe attempted a left-hand turn onto Highway 503 North from Northeast 269th Street, his Harley-Davidson struck the passenger side of a southbound 2001 GMC pickup.
 
It appears the GMC hauling a utility trailer was traveling southbound on the highway before its 45-year-old driver, Sunie S. Waterhouse, tried maneuvering to the northbound lane to avoid the impending crash.
 
Although wearing their helmets, Smith and Rowe were thrown from the motorcycle, according to the release.
 
While paramedics airlifted Rowe to a hospital, Smith died at the scene. Unfortunately, Rowe succumbed to his injuries moments after the crash.
 
Waterhouse, of St. Helens, Ore., and 18-year-old Dominic A. Payne, of St. Helens, Ore., escaped injury.
 
WSP later determined that alcohol did not play a role in the accident.


We would like to take this moment to express our condolences to the friends and families of Michael P. Rowe and Susan L. Smith.
