Ahousaht fisheries manager killed in Wash. State car wreck

Ahousaht First Nation's fisheries manager Darrell E. Campbell, 49, has been killed by a drunk driver in Wash. State, Washington State Patrol confirmed.

The Ahousaht First Nation’s fisheries manager has been killed by a drunk driver in Washington State.

Darrell E. Campbell, 49, was pronounced dead at the scene of a two-car crash on Highway 12 near Port Angeles on the morning of Aug. 25, Washington State Patrol spokesperson Krista Hedstrom confirmed.

Two of Campbell’s relatives – driver Angus Campbell, 57, and Sophie Campbell, 18, were airlifted to Seattle’s Harborview Medical Centre with undetermined injuries.

Sophie Campbell remains in serious condition in intensive care, Harborview spokesperson Susan Gregg said.

Angus Campbell was treated and released from hospital.

All three are from the Ahousaht First Nation, which is located 19 kilometres west of Tofino.

The trio was headed to the Makah Days celebrations in Neah Bay, Wash., Hedstrom said.

According to Hedstrom, the accident happened when Steve W. Boyd, 48, drove his eastbound Isuzu Rodeo across the double yellow centerline and collided with Angus Campbell’s Ford Ranger.

Alcohol was a contributing factor in the accident. “But we’re still waiting for toxicology results to determine the exact amount he had in his system,” Hedstrom said.

Boyd faces charges of vehicular homicide.

Boyd is being held in Clallam County jail and will be formally charged on Tuesday.
