A Yoncalla woman was arrested following a hit-and-run crash around 5:30 p.m. Friday, according to the Sutherlin Police Department.

Officers responded to a crash at the intersection of Calapooia Street and Central Avenue where at least two people were transported to CHI Mercy Medical Center by ambulance with non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.

Witnesses told police that a Ford F-350, driven by Devon Lee Sisk, 29, was driving approximately 40 mph toward stopped traffic when she crashed into a Honda, which then crashed into a Toyota, according to court documents.

A person reported the same vehicle driving recklessly and at high rates of speed on Del Rio Road toward Garden Valley Road.

Sisk was contacted by officers while on Independence Lane in Roseburg at that time and following a short investigation arrested for driving under the influence of intoxicants at that time. Her blood alcohol level was .27, which is “well above the legal limit” of .08, according to Sutherlin Police Department spokesman Kurt Sorenson.

After the arrest, police learned that the truck was stolen and damaged a fence belonging to a local vineyard.

Sisk was charged with felony hit-and-run, failure to perform duties of a driver, reckless driving, DUII and unlawful use of a motor vehicle.
