A Warm Springs resident was arrested and three others injured Saturday morning in a five-vehicle crash on the Redmond Reroute, according to Redmond Police.
Patricia A. Jim, 19, faces charges of driving under the influence of intoxicants, first- and third-degree assault, reckless driving, reckless endangering and possession of a controlled substance. As of Saturday evening, she was being held at the Deschutes County jail on $120,000 bail.
According to police, Jim was driving south on the Parkway shortly after 10 a.m. when she rear-ended a vehicle stopped at the traffic light at Evergreen Avenue, causing a chain reaction involving three additional stopped vehicles.
Jim was traveling approximately 55 mph at the time of the crash, police said, and the occupants of one of the vehicles involved had to be extricated using the Jaws of Life.
Andrea Martin, 22, Margaret Carlson, 59, and Jim were treated at St. Charles Redmond. Lori A. Martin, 48, was taken by helicopter to St. Charles Bend for additional treatment.
Police are continuing to investigate the crash, and encourage any witnesses to contact them.
