Report for Skamania County Sheriff and Washington State Patrol



A Goldendale woman was injured in a two-vehicle accident on State Route 14 at milepost 92 in Wishram. The accident occurred on Sept. 11, 2007, at approximately 2:45 p.m.

According to the report, a 1991 Chevrolet pickup driven by Stuart B. Frost, 41, Goldendale, was westbound on SR 14. He slowed and signaled for a left turn. A 2004 Dodge Dakota pickup driven by Glen O. Everson, 82, Acme, collided with the rear of the Frost vehicle in the westbound lane.

Neither Frost nor Everson were injured in the accident. A passenger in the Frost vehicle -- Beverly J. Nickerson, 37, Goldendale -- suffered injuries and was transported to Mid-Columbia Medical Center in The Dalles.

Everson was charged with negligent driving.



At approximately 5:20 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Skamania County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of skeletal human remains being found by a mushroom picker in the area of Tillicum Campground in northeast Skamania County.

This location is just west of Mt. Adams, approximately 35 miles northeast of Carson.

By the evidence located at the scene, the remains are believed to be those of Dwight A. Kipp, originally reported as missing on May 29, 2006, approximately five miles away.

Kipp was 50 years old at the time of his disappearance.

Final confirmation of the remains has yet to be determined.

Detectives do not suspect foul play in Mr. Kipp's death.

Two teachers from the Rainier Oregon School District were located on Monday at approximately 2:30 p.m. Both required no medical attention.

Kim Wilson and David Bahr were separated, and Wilson was located by some hunters in the area of the Siouxon Creek Trail in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest in central Skamania County.

Wilson was brought to the Wind River Ranger Station where she met up with Skamania County deputies and she then took them to their campsite in the Siouxon Creek drainage. Bahr was located in the area a short time later.

Updates will be provided as new information becomes available.
