(Portland, OR) -- A reckless driver in a pickup drove onto the Grand Floral Parade route in Portland on Saturday sending parade goers running. Portland Police say the driver went around an ODOT truck blocking a ramp from I-5, driving onto an ivy bank to get past the truck. A motorcycle officer tried to stop the driver, but he nearly hit the motorcycle. He turned off the parade route, sending people running. The police air unit followed the truck until officers could stop it. Forty-two-year-old Sidney Mecham, of Portland, was arrested for reckless endangering, attempt to elude, driving while suspended and several other charges.
