ALOHA, Ore. – Deputies arrested a 20-year-old DUII suspect after she allegedly caused a rollover crash in Aloha and fled the scene Saturday.
Shortly after 5 p.m., deputies found a 2010 Toyota Corolla upside down off the roadway on Southwest Kemmer Road. The two people inside had only minor injuries, but deputies learned another vehicle had caused the crash and fled the scene, said Sgt. Bob Ray with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
After a short search, deputies found a 1994 Honda Civic that matched the description of the suspect vehicle one mile away on Southwest 175th Avenue.
Witnesses said a woman had parked the car and ran away, Ray said.
Deputies then found Elizabeth Albertson of Hillsboro and determined the car belonged to her.
Witnesses told deputies Albertson was speeding and passing vehicles in non-passing zones before the crash. They also told deputies the Corolla was turning onto Southwest Kemmer Road when it was struck by Albertson.
Albertson was arrested and booked in the Washington County Jail after deputies determined her blood alcohol content was twice the legal limit. She was charged with DUII, hit and run, reckless driving and criminal mischief.
