On October 28, 2012 at approximately 1:37 a.m., a man and woman were walking from the east side of Highway 99E to west side at the intersection of Park Avenue. As they were positioned in the left southbound lane they were struck by a southbound 2007 Dodge Charger four-door driven by SANDRA KAY BREWSTER, age 48, from Milwaukie.
Both pedestrians received serious but non-life threatening injuries and were transported by AMR ambulance to Oregon Health & Science University. They were identified as QUINCY L. YOUNG, age 31, from southeast Portland, and TALITHA M. BLIVEN, age 29, from Gresham.
Initial investigation led OSP to arrest BREWSTER for DUII, Assault in the Third Degree (2 counts), and Recklessly Endangering Another Person (2 counts). She was lodged in the Clackamas County Jail.
The intersection is controlled by electrical turn signals with marked crosswalks and area overhead street lighting.
OSP troopers from the Portland Area Command office are continuing the investigation. Trooper Alex Monarch is the lead investigator. OSP has not found any independent witnesses to this crash and is asking anyone with information to call Trooper Monarch at (503) 731-3020 ext 477. Due to pending interviews with involved persons, no other information is to be released at this time.
OSP was assisted at the scene by Clackamas County Sheriff's Office and Clackamas County Fire District 1. The southbound lanes were closed about 90 minutes during the scene response and investigation.
