News: 2 hurt as fleeing pickup hits squad car in SE Portland

PORTLAND, OR — Two PPB officers were injured early Wednesday when their squad car was struck by a vehicle during a pursuit in southeast Portland, reports the Portland Police Bureau.

The wreck occurred at 119th Avenue and Southeast Powell Boulevard, in the Powellhurst-Gilbert area, shortly after 1:42 a.m.

According to officials, East Precinct officers had been called to the area of Southeast 119th Avenue and Southeast Clinton Street for a welfare check. When officers arrived, they found a man slumped over, and possibly impaired, behind the wheel of a blue Ford 350 pickup truck. A handgun and drug paraphernalia were also spotted inside the vehicle. Before waking the man, officers placed spike strips under the tires of the pickup to reduce the chance of the driver fleeing in an impaired state.

The male driver later woke and began to drive south on 119th Avenue at high speeds, but the spike strips proved to be effective at deflating his tires. As he approached Powell Boulevard, he ran a stop sign and struck a parked but occupied squad car head-on.

Two officers who were inside the police vehicle sustained minor injuries.

Though the suspect fled on foot, he was apprehended about twenty minutes later. Authorities soon learned the F350 had been stolen out of Vancouver, Washington.

Officers booked the suspect into Multnomah County Detention Center for an investigation into multiple charges, including “unlawful use of a motor vehicle” and “possession of a stolen motor vehicle.”

You Always Have Our Appreciation
We cannot tell you how important it was to my family to receive the money you got us. My family and I were extremely happy when you told us how you pushed the insurance company to settle for the whole amount that they can be sued for. Your law firm did all this and we didn’t even have to go to court. You always have our appreciation.

He Obtained a Settlement Much Higher Than I Had Dared To Hope For
Attorney Bart Herron was referred to me by a friend and co-worker who had been previously helped by Mr. Herron. He took my case too and obtained a settlement much higher than I had dared to hope for. I recommend him highly.
Sometimes it takes more than a well-rounded education, years of experience, and an understanding of the psychology that separates prosecution from defense . . . sometimes it takes Guts to stay the course! We initially chose Mr. Herron based on AVVO reviews, his years of experience, his area of expertise, and even his physical appearance bearing in mind how our son might receive and interact with Mr. Herron and how Mr. Herron’s appearance might be perceived in the courtroom by juror’s.

The Settlement... Was Much Better Than Anything The Insurance Company Had Offered Me
I recommend Herron Law, LLC to everyone. I was hurt in a car accident and the insurance company tried to get me to settle without talking to an attorney. I am glad that I talked with you instead. The settlement your people obtained for me was much better than anything the insurance company had offered me. It turned out that I went through an unexpected hardship right after the car accident. I ended up really needing the extra money. Thanks for all of your help and concern.

Honest, Intelligent and Strong Attorney
I was badly injured in an auto accident. Bartley Herron persuaded the insurance company that they needed to give me the maximum settlement of insurance coverage. The money was and is very important to my family. I recommend Mr. Herron to anyone needing an honest, intelligent and strong attorney to represent them and to fight hard for them. That is what Mr. Herron did for me.

Thank you so much!
Before I called the Herron Law office, I called many other personal injury law offices for free advice. I left many messages, but I received no callback. Then I called Herron Law and spoke with Olga. She spent almost an hour talking to me about my car accident case and told me what I needed to do next. She even emailed me the summary of our conversation to remind me what steps I needed to take in case I forgotten. Thank you, again.

I had a very difficult case because I had been injured so many times in the past. The insurance company’s lawyers tried to make fun of me and kept saying that if I was hurt then it was someone else’s fault and because of one of my old injuries. Mr. Herron put a stop to this. He forced them to deal with the damages I had. And, he made them to pay for the injuries I had now and the old injuries which were made worse. I am grateful for his strength and tack. Mr. Herron stood up for me.

Got More Then 3 Times the Money the Insurance Company Was Wanting To Pay
I contacted your law firm for help after being hurt. I had been talking with the insurance company. The adjuster wanted to settle. But I was concerned that I should talk to a lawyer. Your firm represented me and got more than three times the money the insurance company was wanting to pay. I’m very thankful for the money and what you did for me.
