Van collides with car after eluding police

September 05, 2002 00:00


On September 4, 2002, at 11:39 p.m., Traffic Investigators were called to the scene of a serious injury accident at Northeast 102nd Avenue and Northeast Glisan Street. The incident began when officers were dispatched to a call of a female screaming at Southeast 112th Avenue and Southeast Lincoln Street. Officers arrived and saw a female who appeared to have been assaulted near a van in the intersection. As officers approached, the suspect, later identified as 34-year-old Lee Woodrow Jackson, backed the van toward the officers and struck a police car. The van then fled the area at a high rate of speed.

Officers lost sight of the van as it headed Northbound on 102nd Avenue. As officers were searching the area, they discovered that Jackson's vehicle had collided with a Honda occupied by three adults travelling Eastbound on Northeast Glisan Street. All three occupants of the Honda were transported to Legacy Emanuel Hospital. Jackson was transported to OHSU.

Investigators believe alcohol was a factor involved in the crash. Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to call the Portland Police Bureau Traffic Division at (503) 823-2103

This investigation is continuing.

On September 5, 2002, Jackson was charged with 2 counts of Assault in the Second Degree, DUII, Felony Attempt to Elude, Reckless Endangering, Domestic Violence Assault in the Fourth Degree, and Reckless Driving. He was transferred to the Multnomah County Detention Unit at Portland Adventist Hospital.
