Newport Police Officers this week responded to a single vehicle crash near the intersection of SW Angle and SW 2nd. Luis Angel Landa-Jamie, age 19 of Newport, was operating his vehicle in the area and struck a PUD power pole. During the crash Landa-Jamie’s vehicle became entangled with the power pole support lines, and was hanging from the lines about four feet off the ground.

When Newport Police Officers arrived, they discovered Landa-Jamie had fled the scene. However, while Newport Police units were conducting their investigation, Landa-Jamie was transported back to the scene by an associate. When Landa-Jamie saw that the police were at the scene of the crash, Landa-Jamie jumped out of his associate’s vehicle and again ran off. Newport Police Officers gave chase overtaking Landa-Jamie two blocks away. Landa-Jamie was taken into custody.

It was learned that a female passenger in Landa-Jamie’s vehicle had hit her head during the crash, and was injured. Landa-Jamie had fled the scene without rendering any aid to the injured passenger.

During the investigation it was also determined Landa-Jamie had been drinking. A DUII investigation revealed that Landa-Jamie was impaired. He was transported to the Lincoln County Jail for a breath analysis, which he refused. Newport Police Officers received a search warrant to obtain a blood sample from Landa-Jamie. He was transported to Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital where the blood draw was conducted. Landa-Jamie was cited and released to hospital staff.

He was cited on the following charges: DUII; Felony Hit and Run—Injury; Hit and Run—Property; Reckless Endangering; Minor in Possession Liquor.

Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact the Newport Police Department. The Newport Police Tip Line is available at 541-574-5455, or Text- a-Tip at 541-270-1856.
