Long Police Chase Ends in Crash


It is usually only on Los Angeles TV that you see pursuits like this. Apparently spike strips help bring this one to an end near Warm Springs. It all started around 1:40 Sunday afternoon when Portland Police notified Oregon State Police they were pursing a red pickup truck that was fleeing from a hit-and-run crash near Gresham on Highway 26. Portland Police gave up the chase, but in the meantime, OSP got numerous complaints about the truck involving reckless, high speed driving, and vehicles being run off the roadway. Warm Springs Police were investigating an unrelated crash on Hwy 26 east of Government Camp when the suspect vehicle entered the crash scene and rear-ended another vehicle and injured one person. A Warm Springs Police car chased the suspect vehicle, and spike strips were deployed. The suspect finally crashed near MP 101. The driver fled on foot, but was eventually captured and arrested. The suspect driver was transported by Warm Springs Fire Department to Mountain View Hospital in Madras for a medical evaluation. OSP took custody of the suspect, but no information has been released other than to say he is a 25-year-old man from Utah.
