College Place man dies after wreck near Dayton


DAYTON -- Ronald D. Graham, 63, of College Place, died Tuesday with injuries resulting from a single-car motor vehicle accident on a rural county road northeast of Dayton.

Columbia County Coroner Rea Culwell said Graham's car left the road at approximately 1 p.m. Monday afternoon, and was found around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Preliminary cause of death is likely hypothermia, Culwell said, but officials are still determining the actual cause of death, she said.

Graham was alone in the car, Culwell said. The accident occurred on Willow Creek Road, which has few residents, and is not a well-traveled road.

Graham was director of Inland Counseling Network until 2004, when he was placed on administrative leave. He later resigned, and the agency went into bankruptcy.

He moved from Dayton to College Place, and he and his wife operated Inland Marketing and Management Alliance, LLC, a business managing property in Columbia and Walla Walla counties.
