On Saturday, November 9 at approximately 6:30 p.m., officers responded to an accident at 12th Street and College Avenue. A young woman and two of her friends asked for a ride from a man driving a “lifted” white Ford F350 truck with Oregon license plates. The bed of the vehicle was loaded with what appeared to be camping equipment and the woman and her friends sat on top of the gear. As the driver turned onto 12th Street, he accelerated throwing the woman from the truck causing her to fall onto the pavement. She suffered serious bodily injury.
The truck was later located at 20th Street and Cascade Avenue. The vehicle owner said he was not driving, and the truck was stolen.
