VANCOUVER, WA – Three Dead and One Injured in Wrong-Way Accident on State Route 14

Edgar Acosta, Michelle Henriksbo, and Aaron Dohman Killed in SR 14 Near Columbia House Boulevard

 
VANCOUVER, WA (February 11, 2018) – A fatal wrong-way accident occurred just after 1 AM on Sunday morning on the eastbound lanes of State Route 14, just east of Columbia House Boulevard.
 
Wrong-way driver, Aaron Dohman, was driving at high speeds, when he crashed head-on with another vehicle, driven by Edgar Acosta. A third vehicle was damaged in the crash, but took off before police responded to the scene.
 
Dohman was critically injured and taken to a nearby hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. 47-year-old Michelle M. Henriksbo, the front passenger in Dohman’s car, was pronounced dead on the scene. Henriksbo was a mother of three and a new grandmother. A passenger in the backseat, 33-year-old Christopher L. Koph, was injured and also taken to the hospital for medical treatment. Acosta died at the scene of the crash.
 
A GoFundMe account was set up to help the family of Edgar Acosta with funeral expenses. He leaves behind a wife and three children.
 
SR 14 eastbound from I-5 closed for several hours for investigation of the crash site. Officials believe that drugs and/or alcohol were contributing factors in this fatal accident. They are unsure where the Dohman entered the highway the wrong way.


Heartfelt condolences to the family and loved ones of Edgar Acosta, Michelle Henriksbo, and Aaron Dohman. May they rest in peace.
