Drunk Driver Crashes into Police Car
On Feb. 27, 2015, at 11:44 p.m., Officer Renander was driving eastbound on Southeast Stark St. approaching 155th Ave. when an eastbound 1987 Dodge pick-up, driven by 57-year-old Gary Clark, struck the left rear of the police car, causing a crash and sending the police car up over the sidewalk and into a yard.
Officer Allison Renander was responding to a domestic violence call in Southeast Portland.
Officer Renander was removed from the police car by medical personnel and transported to a Portland hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries. Officer Renander was admitted and is expected to be released this weekend. Officer Renander is a seven-year-veteran of the Portland Police Bureau, assigned to East Precinct night shift.
Clark was not injured but officers noted signs of impairment, leading Traffic Division officers to investigate further, which led to Clark’s arrest.
Clark was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII) and Reckless Driving. He will be arraigned on Monday March 2, 2015
