Husband and Wife Seriously Injured in Golf Cart Collision

April 07, 2006 00:00

  

On April 7, 2006, at 2:58 a.m., investigators from the Portland Police Bureau’s Major Crash Team responded to Southeast Holgate Street and Southeast 23rd Avenue where 27-year-old Jobie Bailey, driving a Volkswagen GTI collided with 35-year-old Jamie McFarland and his wife, 34-year-old Angela McFarland. The McFarlands were trying to push their disabled golf cart to a friend’s home when the collision occurred. Bailey was charged with one count of Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants, and one count of Reckless Driving. He was lodged into the Multnomah County Detention Center.

Jamie and Angela McFarland were driving their golf cart westbound on SE Holgate Street when it became disabled. Angela remained in the golf cart to steer, while Jamie attempted to push it to the home of a nearby friend. As Jamie McFarland pushed his wife in the golf cart, Bailey collided with them from the rear, causing serious injury to both Jamie and Angela McFarland. The McFarlands were transported to a local hospital where they are recovering from their injuries.

This investigation is continuing.
