Matthew Scott, 39, of Tualatin, died in a crash in snow on Interstate 5 near Ridgefield, Wash. Thursday. Snowfall caused numerous crashes that halted traffic on I-5 north of Vancouver, as well as along State Route 503 through Battle Ground. Vancouver Public Works has 17 vehicles outfitted with combination plows and deicers to handle both snow and icy conditions. Officials warned that neighborhood side streets do not get plowed due to higher demands for arterial roads.
