Oregon State Police (OSP) is asking for the public's help to identify the person(s) responsible for damage to a vehicle Saturday night as it traveled southbound along Interstate 205 in the Gladstone area. An unknown object struck the right front passenger side window, traveled through the interior and exited out the left rear side window after narrowly missing a 14 year-old girl in the back seat. The vehicle's owner has requested her name or contact information not be released to media at this time.
According to OSP Trooper Kimberly Long, on September 24, 2011 at approximately 10:47 p.m. a 1999 Ford Explorer driven by a 49-year old Gladstone woman was traveling southbound on Interstate 205 near milepost 11 over the Clackamas River bridge when the right front passenger window shattered. Almost simultaneously, the left rear side window also broke out. The driver immediately pulled over when she saw an Oregon City police car stopped on the side of the freeway.
The unknown object's trajectory likely traveled directly in front of her 14-year old daughter in the right rear seat.
Long found no evidence to clearly say if the damage was caused by a firearm, rock or other object.
Oregon City police were already in the area trying to locate a burglary suspect, but there is no evidence or information connecting both incidents. Gladstone police also responded and assisted OSP and Oregon City police with a thorough area search but no suspects from either incident were found.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Trooper Long at (503) 731-3020 ext. 414.
