Red light runner causes Vancouver, WA 3-car accident

The Columbian reports that a La Center Man, Andrew J. Gravlee, 22, has been cited for running a red light and causing a Vancouver car accident on State Route 500 and Northbound 137th in Vancouver, Washington around 11:45am on Sunday.

According to the report, Gravlee was headed eastbound on Highway 500 when he struck a Toyota driven by Michael V. McChesney, 29, of Vancouver who was headed southbound on NE 137th Avenue.

The impact of the collision caused Gravlee’s truck to spin around and he hit a Saturn driven by Melissa Bernhardt, 25, of Vancouver.

Gravlee and Bernhardt were both taken to Southwest Washington Hospital where they were treated for injuries and released.

Gravlee was also cited for driving with no insurance and driving on a suspended license. Running a red light is covered by Washington state vehicle code RCW 46.61.050 “Obedience to and required traffic control devices.”
