      Police: Three injured in Vancouver crash

      VANCOUVER, Wash. - Three people were injured in a two-vehicle crash in Vancouver early Tuesday morning.

      It happened at the intersection of Northeast Fourth Plain Boulevard and Andresen Road just before 2 a.m.

      Vancouver Police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said Ashley R. Gumbel, 28, was speeding westbound on Fourth Plain and crashed into another vehicle after running a red light. Her car's headlights were not on, Kapp said.

      Medics took Gumbel to a hospital with life-threatening injuries, Kapp said.

      There were two people in the second car. Levi Verstegen, 20, and Sierra Hornsby, 19, were both taken to a hospital. Kapp said they were treated and released.

      A Vancouver police officer witnessed the crash, and used several fire extinguishers to fight a fire in Gumbel's car before firefighters arrived.

      It's unclear if alcohol was a factor in the crash, Kapp said.

      Video from KATU News helicopter Chopper 2 showed police blocking the intersection and two damaged vehicles. The intersection was filled with debris from the crash.
