PORTLAND — The driver who police say left the scene of a weekend crash that killed a pedestrian has been arrested along with an accomplice.
60-year-old Douglas Miller was hit at Southeast 124th and Powell around 6:30 on Saturday night. It’s the third fatal crash of the year in the city.
Officers were led to a home where they found 24-year-old Jay Jenkins late Sunday night. They towed a 1995 Subaru station wagon from the property as evidence. It still had damage to the front end. Jenkins is charged with manslaughter, hit and run, tampering with evidence and obstructing.
Police believe that 29-year-old Jerin Crabtree was helping him repair the damaged vehicle. He’s also charged with tampering. Both men will be in court on Tuesday.
