TIGARD, Ore. – Police arrested a man who they said fled the scene of a crash early Saturday morning in Tigard.

It happened at the intersection of Pacific Highway and Southwest Beef Bend Road at around 1 a.m., according to Tigard police spokesman Jim Wolf.

A Toyota 4Runner crashed into a Honda Civic as it tried to make a left turn onto Beef Bend Road. Two people in the Honda were taken to OHSU in Portland. Their injuries were not life-threatening, Wolf said.

The driver of the Toyota, Corey Michael Kaufman, ran away from the crash scene. Police used his vehicle registration to find his apartment, where they arrested him.

Kaufman was taken to the Washington County Jail on charges of DUII, hit and run and Assault 4 (2 counts).

Police said Kaufman’s passenger, Danna Zimmerly, stayed at the scene.
