PORTLAND -- North Precinct officers responded to a report of multiple hit-and-run crashes on Interstate 5 southbound Monday morning near the Killingsworth Street overpass.

Three victims told police that a vehicle was swerving in and out of traffic and driving in between the left and middle lanes, hitting cars along the way, according to Sgt. Pete Simpson of the Portland Police Bureau.

The suspect vehicle was described as a white and black 1980s Chevy El Camino.

Officers stopped the vehicle, driven by 60-year-old Allen Jay Collins, near Northeast 42nd Avenue and Sumner Street. He was taken to a Portland hospital for some medical and mental health issues, police said.

Collins was given citations in connection with four different hit and run crashes.

Traffic was moving very slowly Monday morning. There were no reported injuries to the drivers of the involved vehicles.

Anyone with information about the vehicle should call the police non-emergency line at (503) 823-3333.
