Camas police officers and firefighters responded to the scene of fatal crash shortly after midnight Wednesday.
The emergency responders were dispatched about 12:13 a.m. to the 900 block of Northeast Third Avenue in Camas for the report of a serious traffic crash.
The Camas Police Department said in a news release that the responders found a Pontiac G6 on its roof with two passengers inside.
The driver was taken to the hospital with not life threatening injuries; the passenger was pronounced dead at the scene, the police department said.
According to the release sent out around 7:30 a.m., police are continuing to investigate at the scene.
“Speed was clearly a factor in the (crash). However, all other proximate causes are also being investigated,” the release says.
Clark County Sheriff’s Office traffic investigators are helping look into what happened.
A portion of Northeast Third Avenue closed for several hours Wednesday morning.
Camas police said Wednesday evening the driver was 29-year-old Michael Tatiachy, a resident of Vancouver. The passenger killed in the crash was Tatiachy’s 18-year-old cousin, Manson Juea, also of Vancouver.
