Deputies located the vehicle after it committed a hit and run in the Hockinson area
At about 10:50 a.m. Sunday (Sept. 25), Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency dispatchers began receiving calls about a reckless driver involved in numerous hit and run accidents.
The vehicle was first reported at the intersection of NE 99th St and Highway 99. Five reports in total were called and each one was further to the east than the previous call. Deputies began searching for the vehicle but none of the original callers had actually been a victim of hit and run.
Shortly after, deputies received information that the vehicle was an “unreported stolen” vehicle, meaning the owner had called in but the vehicle was not entered into law enforcement data systems.
Deputies located the vehicle after it committed a hit and run in the Hockinson area. Deputies observed the vehicle drive directly toward a group of people walking on NE 192nd Ave near NE Davis Rd. Deputies prepared to use spike strips to stop the driver when she stopped the vehicle and surrendered.
Deputies were able to confirm with the Portland Police Bureau that the vehicle was stolen and it was taken in a Burglary. (Further details of that crime will need to be released by the Portland Police).
The driver, Erika Lynn McClung, was taken into custody and lodged at the Clark County Jail on charges of Possession of a Stolen Vehicle and Driving Under the Influence. Charges in Portland are pending.
