LAKE OSWEGO, Oregon - Today at 4:34 pm, a CCSO Detective relayed via radio that he was attempting to stop a vehicle that he observed had been driving recklessly on SR14 eastbound. The detective stated that the vehicle, an older red Acura coupe, had passed him at speeds over 100 mph and was weaving in and out of lanes.

The detective activated his patrol car's emergency lights and attempted to stop the vehicle, which continued east on SR14, taking the 6th Street Exit in Camas. The vehicle then abruptly reversed course and drove west on SR14 at a high rate of speed. The detective continued to follow the vehicle to the area of NE 192nd Avenue. The detective then slowed in order to discontinue the pursuit, and the suspect vehicle slowed as well, suddenly swerving in an attempt to collide with the detective's patrol car.

The detective attempted to avoid the collision, but his car was struck by the suspect's vehicle, which then caused the suspect to lose control and slide off the roadway on the north side of SR14. The suspect, a white male adult, fled on foot into the rock quarry on the north side of SR14. The suspect was located and arrested following a successful track by VPD K9 Ivar. The suspect was taken to an area hospital with unspecified injuries that were not life threatening.

The suspect is not being identified at this time, due to an ongoing investigation. The CCSO detective was not injured in this collision and his patrol vehicle suffered minor damage. No suspects remain outstanding in this case.
