High speed chase ends badly for Yachats resident and his passenger

On December 9th at approximately 2:20 AM, Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputies attempted to initiate a traffic stop on a silver Jeep Patriot driving erratically through Waldport. The driver of the Jeep refused to stop for the deputies and attempted to flee eastbound on Highway 34. After attempting to elude deputies for approximately eight miles, the vehicle left the road on a curve and crashed down an embankment.

The driver of the vehicle, 28 year old Yachats resident Jay Plaisted, was injured in the collision and transported to Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital in Newport. Plaisted’s passenger, a 51 year-old female, was transported by Life Flight to a hospital out of the area.

Impairment is believed to have contributed to the crash. The incident remains under investigation and updates will be released as they become available.
