Camas man charged with vehicular homicide after fatal Camas collision
A Camas man has been arrested and charged with vehicular homicide in connection to a Nov. 5, 2020, head-on collision that left one person dead and three others injured.
Camas police reported this week that they have arrested one of the drivers in that two-car collision, Ethan Province.
Province, 31, of Camas, has been booked in the Clark County Jail and charged with one count of vehicular homicide and two counts of vehicular assault.
Police say Province was driving a 2021 BMW X3M northwest on Northwest Lake Road around 11:30 a.m. Nov. 5, 2020, when he allegedly crossed into the oncoming lane and collided head-on with a 2020 Kia Sportage driven by Marisa Silva, 37, of Portland.
Police say an investigation showed Province was driving at “an excessive speed when the collision occurred.
Silva’s mother, Francine Wohl, 62, of Vancouver, a passenger in the Kia, was critically injured in the crash and later died at the hospital from her injuries.
Silva, as well as Bogdan Valcu, 40, of Washougal, a passenger in the BMW, both suffered “extensive injuries,” from the crash, according to Camas police.
Province sustained minor injuries from the collision.
Camas Police Sgt. Scot Boyles said the gap between the November 2020 collision and Province’s arrest this week was due to the time it took investigators to gather the proper information, including car computer data and medical records. Members of the Clark County Traffic Homicide Unit assisted the Camas Police Department in their investigation.
As of this newspaper’s print deadline, Province was scheduled to have his first appearance in Clark County Superior Court at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, March 31.
