February 28, 2015 - A Bethany man crashed his 2015 Mercedes into a tree and crosswalk sign. He was criminally cited for the crash.

At 1:45 a.m., Saturday morning, Washington County deputies responded to a report of a high-speed crash near the intersection of NW Laidlaw and NW Waterford Way. Upon arrival, deputies found a 2015 Mercedes with substantial damage.

Deputies located the driver, Bruce Tran, age 39 of Bethany standing near his wrecked car unharmed. Mr. Tran reported that he was driving faster than the posted speed when he lost control of his car. When the car left the road, it struck a tree and then a crosswalk sign before coming to rest against a brick wall. The contact with the sign tore off most of the passenger side of the car.

Mr. Tran was criminally cited for Reckless Driving and Criminal Mischief II.

Speeding contributes to a higher risk of traffic crashes. The Washington County Sheriff's Office encourages drivers to obey posted speed limits and drive safely for the road conditions.

On Friday February 27, 2015, at 11:44 p.m., East Precinct Officer Allison Renander was responding to a domestic violence call in Southeast Portland. Officer Renander was driving eastbound on Southeast Stark Street approaching 155th Avenue, slowing down, when an eastbound 1987 Dodge pick-up, driven by 57-year-old Gary Clark, struck the left rear of the patrol car, causing a crash and sending the police car up over the sidewalk and into a yard.

Officer Renander was removed from the patrol car by medical personnel and transported to a Portland hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries. Officer Renander was admitted and is expected to be released this weekend. Officer Renander is a seven-year-veteran of the Portland Police Bureau, assigned to East Precinct night shift.

BEAVERTON, Ore. - The Beaverton City Library will host another Oregon Humanities Conversation Project on Friday, March 6, from 3:30-5 p.m. at the main library, 12375 SW Fifth Street. Leslie Dunlap, an assistant professor of history at Willamette University, will lead participants in a discussion on the nature and bounds of marriage, the public and private meanings of the institution, and the related ideas of love , justice, freedom and commitment.


The discussion will cover issues including:
* Significant changes to the institution of marriage, especially in the last decade
* Debate in Oregon over how to define marriage
* What debates about marriage reveal about the institution itself
* Why private relationships are publicly significant and contested
* Why some people wish to marry, while others are avoiding or dissolving marriages

City Council to Consider New Logo and Riverfront Real Estate Purchase

CITY COUNCIL TO CONSIDER NEW LOGO AND RIVERFRONT REAL ESTATE PURCHASE


News Release from City of Wilsonville
Posted on FlashAlert: February 27th, 2015 3:31 PM
WILSONVILLE, OR -- At the upcoming Wilsonville City Council meeting on Monday, March 2, 2015, the Council is expected to consider the adoption of a new branding strategy which includes a new logo, tagline and positioning statement for the City. If approved, the logo and tagline will replace the original logo adopted when the City was incorporated in 1969 depicting a hand holding a seedling and tagline of "Serving the Community with Pride." Over the past five months, members of the City leadership have worked closely with a Portland-based branding and marketing firm, Manifesto, to conduct research, interview community lea ders, draft a positioning statement, and develop a proposed logo and tagline. Creation of a new branding identity for the City represents the completion of a City Council goal that was suggested during both the economic-development and tourism-development strategies formation.

At the meeting the City Council is also expected to consider a resolution authorizing the City to acquire riverfront property that adjoins Boones Ferry Park in the Old Town neighborhood of Wilsonville. The property is located east of Boones Ferry Park and south of the Wilsonville Wastewater Treatment Plant. Formerly the location of a mobile-home park, the site is currently occupied only by the property owners. If approved by Council, acquisition of this riverfront land provides for a potential future expansion of the adjacent Boones Ferry Park and additional public access to the Willamette River, which was identified in the 2014 Tourism Development Strategy as an important priority.

Other items to be considered by City Council include a consideration of a resolution in support of creating a Willamette Falls National Heritage area and a proposed supplemental budget adjustment moving approved expenditures from one category to another without increasing the overall budget previously approved by City Council.

Under Communications, the City Council is scheduled to hear a report from members of Wood Middle School's Jr. Scoop club, who are expected to provide an overview of their club and provide City Council and attendees at the meeting free samples of their premium ice cream.

Suspicious Circumstance leads to Pursuit and DUI Arrest in Washougal

SUSPICIOUS CIRCUMSTANCE LEADS TO PURSUIT AND DUI ARREST IN WASHOUGAL


News Release from Washougal Police Dept.
Posted on FlashAlert: February 27th, 2015 11:18 AM
On February 26, 2015 at 2305 hours officers of the Washougal Police Department responded to a suspicious person call outside the Washougal Police Department. Dispatchers advised they had received a 911 call of a male subject in a green SUV waving a gun or knife around.

As officers began looking around the surrounding area of the police department a green 1994 Ford Explorer was observed passing the front of the police department. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle; however, the driver took off at a high rate of speed. Officers pursued the vehicle westbound on SR14 from Washougal River Road to approximately 192nd Ave where the officers disengaged and terminated the pursuit.

As officers returned to Washougal the same green 1994 Ford Explorer passed a fully marked Washougal Police car near exit 12. Officers report the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed when it passed them, however, the vehicle slowed down in front of the officer. The suspect vehicle began speeding up and slowing down as if the driver was trying to provoke the officer to chase him again. Instead of engaging in another high speed pursuit the officer opted not to engage and just followed behind the vehicle keeping a safe distance.

Other Washougal officers overheard the radio traffic that the suspect vehicle was returning to Washougal and was possibly provoking another high speed pursuit. Spike strips were deployed on SR14 near Washougal River Road which successfully began deflating 3 tires. As officers observed the tires were flat they re-engaged and attempted to stop the vehicle again. The vehicle failed to stop and continued fleeing north on Washougal River Road at speeds of 30-40mph. The suspect vehicle began crossing into the oncoming lane of Washougal River Road making this pursuit even more dangerous. The pursuit was terminated by officers using PIT (Pursuit Immobilization Technique) which brought the suspect vehicle to a stop near the 3600 block of Washougal River Road.

The driver, Cameron L. Frank (23) of Washougal refused to comply with officer's request to show his hands. A Taser was deployed and Frank's was taken into custody without incident. Frank's was checked by medical personnel and was found to be uninjured.

Although, Frank's motive is unclear alcohol was a factor in this incident. Upon arrest Frank's made statements about wanting to get shot by the police. Frank's was arrested and booked for Attempting to Elude Police Vehicle and Driving Under the Influence.

The investigation remains active.

News Release from Portland Bureau of Transportation
Posted on FlashAlert: February 27th, 2015 9:28 AM
The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation advises the traveling public that on March 2nd street improvements will require lane closures on NE 7th Avenue from NE Multnomah Street to NE Weidler Street.

The lane closures will allow crews to grind .63 lane miles of pavement in preparation for paving at a later date.

PBOT street improvement crews work through the winter, adjusting tasks based on weather conditions. Crews will grind down old asphalt and prepare street surfaces for paving even in cold and rainy conditions. They will return to complete paving during a window of dry weather.

Streets with ground down surfaces are open for travel. Lane closures are only in effect during project hours. Access will be maintained for businesses and residents during the project.

The traveling public is advised to expect delays while repairs are being made. We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all lane closures and directions by flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.

This work is weather-dependent and the schedule may change

Gresham Police Participate in Safety Belt Blitz

GRESHAM POLICE PARTICIPATE IN SAFETY BELT BLITZ


News Release from Gresham Police Dept
Posted on FlashAlert: February 26th, 2015 11:10 PM
Gresham, Ore. - The Gresham Police Department has been working with the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and other local agencies for this year's first safety belt blitz campaign. The enhanced patrols will occurred from February 9, 2014 through February 22, 2014. The enforcement is funded by the USDOT's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. During this blitz, there will be an emphasis on child safety restraints, texting while driving and speeding.

According to ODOT crash data, 938 child passengers under the age of eight were killed or injured in a one year time period. Nearly one third of those children were either riding unrestrained or in the wrong type of safety restraint for their size. You can find more information about fitting stations at the following websites: http://www.nhtsa.gov/apps/cps/index.htm or at http://oregonimpact.org/car-seat-resources/

Distracted driving is a major contributor to traffic collisions. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2012 there were 3,328 fatalities and 421,000 injuries as a result of distraction-affected crashes nationwide. Also, it is estimated that at any given moment during the daytime across the US, 660,000 people are using cell phones or electronic devices while driving. This behavior can increase by three times a driver's risk of getting into a crash.

Gresham Police will also be continuing to watch for drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs during the blitz. During the month of January 2015, officers working under the Oregon Impact DUII grant arrested eight drivers for suspicion of DUII, cited ten people for driving with a suspended license, wrote 42 other citations for violations and gave out 19 warnings. Additionally, during the January seat belt blitz Officers cited 16 drivers for seat belt violations, issued 15 speeding citations, cited 5 drivers for driving while suspended and gave out 27 warnings.

Linn County Undersheriff Jim Yon reports his deputies are investigating a vehicle vs. pedestrian crash that occurred in Scio. Today at 3:10 P.M, the sheriff's office received a call that reported a single vehicle crash involving a juvenile pedestrian at the intersection of NW 2nd and NW Alder Street in Scio.

The operator of the vehicle, Joy Irish 82 years old of Scio, was driving a white 2002 Dodge Dakota. Irish was the only occupant in the vehicle. Irish was traveling east on NW 2nd Street at a speed of 15-20 MPH. A witness told deputies that a juvenile male, 14 years-old from Scio, was riding a skateboard south on NW Alder Street. The witness said the juvenile did not stop at the stop sign at the intersection and rode in front of Irish.

Irish remained on scene and is cooperating with the investigation. The juvenile was complaining of leg pain and other minor injuries. He was transported to Good Samaritan Regional Hospital in Corvallis for evaluation. The juvenile was not wearing a helmet. This crash remains under investigation. At this time, no citations have been issued.

The Linn County Sheriff's Office would like to remind everyone of the dangers involved with pedestrian traffic on our roadways. This is the second vehicle vs. pedestrian crash the sheriff's office has responded to in less than 2 weeks. Please be mindful of motor vehicles when riding bicycles, skateboarding, running or walking on roadways. Often wearing highly visible or reflective clothing can help drivers see pedestrians and avoid these types of crashes.

Cowlitz Sheriff reports that at about 9:15pm today, 2-25-15, Christopher "Wyatt" Potter, 35 yrs, was shot in the abdomen with a 45 caliber pistol by his roommate, Christopher Lee Yourkwitz, 41 yrs. The shooting happened at 201 Veys Ave, Kelso, in a home owned by Potter. Yourkwitz and Potter got in to a dispute (nature unknown) which led to Yourkwitz shooting Potter at close range. Potter ran next door to a neighbors (unknown) and reported being shot and to call 911 which they did. He was taken by ambulance to St. John Hospital in Longview.

Yourkwitz has a history of felony assault in the past and is still at large. He has a very distinctive tattoo across his face, see photo attached. He is 5'8" 175 lbs and brown eyes. Yourkwitz is believed to be armed with a pistol and possibly a semi-auto rifle. He is extremely dangerous.

Cowlitz Sheriff Detectives are still on scene.

Yourkwitz is wanted for Assault 1st degree and Felon in Possession of a Firearm.
