PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Portland Police responded to a crash on NE 60th Ave. and NE Simpson St. Wednesday afternoon.

Police say 3 cars were involved and one of the drivers fled the scene. One of the vehicles went through a fence and narrowly missed Kristi Skeie, who was sitting in the backyard.

“Before I could get up I just heard something come through the thing and dirt and boards and everything was flying everywhere, and when I got up, the guy just went right through the fence right over there and he was in a lot of pain,” Skeie tells KOIN 6 News.

3 people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Police continue to search for the missing driver as well as investigate what caused the crash.
