TIGARD, Ore. – Officers made 11 DUII arrests overnight Saturday, including two from crashes, police said.

The worst crash was a head-on collision involving a wrong-way driver on Southwest Pacific Highway just after 9:00 p.m. (pictured).

Brenda Gentry, 48, of Tigard was driving south on northbound lanes, possibly with the car’s headlights off, when she struck a BMW sedan driven by a Newburg man.

That crash sent Gentry and the two people in the BMW to the hospital, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. Gentry suffered life-threatening injuries. The others had non-life-threatening injuries.

Gentry was arrested for DUII and assault.

Then, around 3:15 a.m. Sunday, a Dodge pickup driven by Charles Huckins, 22, of Beaverton drove off the road at a curve. The truck rolled and ejected a dog that was riding in the truck’s bed. The dog was not hurt, police said.

Huckins was not injured in the crash. He was arrested for DUII and taken to the Washington County Jail.

Nine other people over the weekend were also arrested for DUII, police said.
