SHERWOOD, Ore. — A father and three children were injured in a hit-and-run crash south of Sherwood on Saturday night.
All four — the father, his two daughters, and one of their friends, also a girl — were taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Shortly after 9:30 p.m. Saturday, the father was driving south in a 2003 Mazda 3 on Highway 99 near Southwest Chapman Road when a person, later arrested and identified as Manuel Naim Lujan-Rivera, driving a 1993 Ford Ranger pulled out in front of the Mazda.
The Ford hit the Mazda, which forced it off the road, where it rolled over.
Lujan-Rivera continued driving and then crashed into a ditch about two miles away. Witnesses told police the driver and his passenger were picked up immediately by another car, which drove away from the scene.
Police say they're investigating DUII as a factor for the crash.
Lujan-River was charged with assault in the third degree, assault in the fourth degree (three counts), failure to perform the duties of a driver and driving while suspended. His bail is set at $10,000.
