A Vancouver woman was killed in a rollover accident Sunday afternoon in Skamania County.

The sheriff's office says Shauna Medlin, 42, was riding as a passenger in a 2007 Dodge pickup driven by Washougal resident James Benton, 66, when the vehicle left Washougal River Road and rolled just east of North Fork Road.

Medlin was pronounced dead at the scene and Benton was booked into the Skamania County Jail on suspicion of vehicular homicide.

The collision is under further investigation. Undersheriff Dave Cox says the preliminary investigation shows that speed was a contributing factor in the crash.

"Our condolences go out to the Medlin family for this tragic event," Cox said.
