WASHINGTON CO., Ore. (KOIN) — A woman was arrested early Sunday morning for DUII and multiple other charges after causing a two-vehicle crash as she exited I-5 south, authorities said.

Hailey Elden, 21, from Tigard was driving around 1:15 a.m. when she allegedly ran a red light, striking a 2004 Chevy at the intersection on Kruse Way, Washington County Sheriff’s Office said.

A sheriff’s deputy who witnessed the crash said they quickly suspected Elden was under the influence when they approached her following the crash. She was arrested, and they later determined she had given them a fake name, officials said.

Elden was taken to a local hospital where she was treated and released, deputies said. When deputies attempted to take her to jail, she fought them. No one was injured.

The other vehicle involved had three occupants, all from Portland. One person had to be extricated by TVF&R. He suffered non-life-threatening injuries and has since been released from the hospital. No one else was injured in the crash.

Elden was charged with DUII, reckless driving, fourth degree assault, possession of heroin, resisting arrest, providing false information to police and a warrant for failing to appear in court on a previous heroin charge.
