On Tuesday, September 24, 2013, at approximately 7:25 a.m., Portland Police Officers located a vehicle that had been reported stolen earlier that morning. Officers stopped the vehicle, an Acura Integra, near the intersection of S.E. 92nd and Market, but the driver drove away before officers could approach the car.

Officers began a short pursuit and as the suspect approached spike strips set up by other officers, he swerved and severed a fire hydrant and clipped a utility pole near the intersection of S.E. 82nd and Main.

The suspect, who was conscious and breathing, was taken into custody, but is being taken to a local hospital. Charges are pending.
