On June 6, 2017, at about 8:15pm, a westbound Ford F-150 pickup crashed into two unoccupied work trucks while parked along the westbound shoulder of Highway 26 near milepost 61 in a marked construction zone (Hillboro). Both trucks were associated with the construction project and one belonged to ODOT. ODOT and construction crews were performing night work in a marked highway work zone at the time of the crash. The driver of the Ford truck had contact with ODOT workers at the scene, who observed he was impaired. The driver, who was later identified as Robby Smythe (51 years old), fled the scene on foot into a residential area north of the construction zone. Hillsboro Police deployed a K-9 and was able to locate Smythe walking in a nearby neighborhood. Smythe was taken into custody and lodged at the Washington County Jail on charges of DUII, Reckless Driving, Recklessly Endangering Highway Workers and Hit & Run. No injuries were reported as a result of the crash.

OSP was assisted at the scene by the Hillsboro Police Department and the Washington County Sheriff's Office.
