BEAVERTON — A man driving a stolen truck took off from a crash on the Sunset Highway westbound at the Cornell Road exit on Tuesday afternoon. He ran up the exit ramp, but didn’t get far.
Police tracked him down hiding in bushes north of the freeway at NW 153rd and Oak Hills Drive. 30-year-old Jose Duran-Maya was arrested.
The vehicle was stolen earlier in the day during a burglary in Hillsboro. Two people in the cab that Duran-Maya hit were taken to the hospital to be treated for their injuries.
The crash backed up traffic right as the rush hour began. The exit was closed and vehicles were only allowed through the center lane.
