Suspect evades arrest by hitching ride on back of moving semi truck


A person is still at large after suspect evades arrest by jumping onto the back of a moving semi truck during a police chase early on Monday morning. 

The incident occurred on December 11th at around 4:10 a.m. in Clark County, Washington. 

According to Fox 12 Oregon, officers were called to NE 117th Ave near the 9500 block of Vancouver after receiving reports of a red Camry driving erratically. Police responded to the scene and tried to pull the Camry over, but the driver did not stop and attempted to flee from the officers. 

The Camry headed north on State Route 503 and made a u-turn at NE 179th Street. The Camry led police on a chase at 100 mph before deputies were able to deploy stop sticks at NE 119th Street and NE Padden Parkway.

Once the Camry was forced to stop in the intersection of NE 117th Avenue and NE 76th Street, three occupants exited the car and fled on foot, running into the Fred Meyer parking lot. Two of those suspects were tased and taken into custody. The third suspect was reportedly seen clinging to the back of a semi truck as it drove away from the area. 

Investigation of the incident revealed that the car had been stolen from Portland on Sunday, December 10th, and a loaded gun and ammunition was found inside. 

The incident is still under investigation, and further information on the suspect that got away has not been released.
