A pedestrian is in the hospital with serious injuries after being crushed between her car and a car that hit her.
Monday afternoon, East Precinct Officers were dispatched to a report of a pedestrian-involved crash in the 4800 block of Southeast Steele Street. When officers arrived they found a woman who had been crushed between two cars. The victim, a 75-year-old female, was treated by paramedics and then transported to a hospital. Her injuries are serious.
The Traffic Division responded to assist with the investigation. Officers determined that the victim was standing behind her parked car on the side of Steele Street. She was getting items out of the trunk of her car when the suspect ran into the victim and her car, causing traumatic injuries to the victim's legs.
The officers arrested the driver of the vehicle. 35-year-old Hayley Jean, of Portland, was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on charges of Assault in the Second Degree, Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (Drugs), Reckless Driving, and Reckless Endangerment.
