WEST LINN, Ore. – Drivers on a stretch of Highway 43 had to swerve to avoid a Jaguar that rolled across the busy roadway Tuesday.
No one was hurt.
The Jaguar had rolled onto the highway from a nearby Walmart parking lot. Investigators said the driver had parked the vehicle in the lot on Willamette Drive, but failed to fully set the parking brake.
Then, the Jaguar started rolling away, going across the highway, before striking a metal pipe at the Chevron gas station across the street.
“We are very lucky no one was hurt this afternoon,” said Sgt. Neil Hennelly with the West Linn Police Department. No word yet on whether the driver of the Jaguar will be cited.
