Redmond PD: Drunk driver arrested after ramming three vehicles

A Sisters woman driving drunk Friday rammed into three parked cars in downtown Redmond, according to Redmond Police.

Redmond Police Officers and Redmond Fire & Rescue personnel responded to a multi-vehicle crash around 3 p.m. Friday at the intersection of SW 6th Street and SW Cascade Ave in downtown Redmond.

Lt. Curtis Chambers said a Toyota 4Runner side-swiped a parked Ford pickup on NW 6th Street near NW Greenwood Ave and then continued driving south. The 4Runner entered downtown, a 20-mph zone, at speeds reported to be close to 50-mph. The sidewalks were filled with afternoon shoppers and diners, with much of the on-street parking spaces occupied, Chambers said.

The 4Runner swerved to the left and rear-ended a parked GMC Terrain. The force of the collision launched the unoccupied GMC into a street tree, and then across SW Cascade Ave. The GMC collided with a parked Toyota Corolla. The 4Runner was disabled at the crash scene after it came to a stop on the sidewalk, Chambers said.

The driver of the 4Runner was identified as 28-year-old Ashley Clary of Sisters. Clary was taken to St. Charles Redmond for minor injuries.

She was arrested for DUII-Alcohol, Reckless Driving, four counts of Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree, and Hit & Run – Misdemeanor. She was released at the hospital with a citation to appear in Deschutes County Circuit Court due to medical reasons.
