A man in his 30s died after a car accident on Vancouver’s west side on Sunday.
An Acura MDX ran off the road and struck a tree on Northwest Marine Drive and West 4th Avenue around 9 p.m., causing severe damage and killing the sole occupant of the vehicle at the scene.
“At this point, we can say without a doubt that speed was a factor, but we are looking at what other factors may have played a role in this,” said Sgt. Steve Addison of the Vancouver Police Department said.

“To give you an idea of how shocking this collision was, the engine block came off the front of the vehicle and drifted several feet.”
Police say prior to the collision they received multiple reports of a black Acura driving erratically throughout the city.
