Monday, October 06, 2014
Joshua Lindsay, 34, and a fellow passenger broke into a residence in NE Portland before stealing the owner’s car keys, according to a police report.
After driving westbound in the stolen vehicle, Lindsay crashed in the back of a 1995 Honda Odyssey, police said.
Lindsay continued driving westbound until the vehicle stalled. Lindsay was seen slapping his fellow passenger with an open hand, as if he was trying to wake her up, according to a witness.
Lindsay then removed some items from the car and ran from the scene.
North Precinct officers later spotted Lindsay walking out of a backyard at the corner of Northeast 72nd Avenue and Alberta Street.
The Honda Odyssey driver was taken to a local hospital and subsequently released after receiving only minor injuries.
Lindsay was not injured in the crash. The passenger, however, was transported to a local hospital, where she was listed in critical condition, according to the police statement.
