At the scene, investigators learned that Bechard was Westbound on Northeast Marine Drive when he passed a witness and continued Westbound. Shortly after passing the witness vehicle, Bechard’s vehicle made a sudden and erratic turn toward the Columbia River. Bechard’s vehicle then plunged into the river.
No other person was injured during this single car accident. This investigation is continuing.
