Motorcyclist Injured in Early-Morning DUII Crash

June 25, 2017 -- Early this morning, a motorcyclist was injured in a single-vehicle crash outside Forest Grove. His blood-alcohol content was nearly three times the legal limit. Deputies have been busy this weekend with DUII enforcement. One deputy made six DUII arrests in two nights.

On Sunday, June 25, 2017, at 12:20 a.m., Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to a single-vehicle motorcycle crash on B Street north of SW Stringtown Road, just outside the city of Forest Grove.

Samuel Zumwalt, 21, of Hillsboro, was injured in the crash. He was transported to a metro-area hospital for treatment of his injuries. Deputies were assisted at the scene by Forest Grove Police and Forest Grove Fire & Rescue.

The subsequent investigation revealed that speed and alcohol were factors in the crash. Mr. Zumwalt's blood-alcohol content was nearly three times the legal limit. He was cited for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII). No mugshot is available.

Deputies have been very busy this weekend dealing with impaired drivers. Deputy Chris Gilderson of the Traffic Safety Unit made three DUII arrests on Friday night and another three on Saturday night.

Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants is a serious problem in our society. The Washington County Sheriff's Office is committed to aggressive enforcement of DUII laws. Our deputies arrest an average of 1,000 impaired drivers each year. Please report suspected impaired drivers to 911 or non-emergency dispatch at 503-629-0111.
