That day, the westbound maroon or burgundy pickup with a silver or white stripe was headed west on US 30 near milepost 33. The driver allegedly fired a gun and struck the windshield of an eastbound pickup truck.

The people in that pickup, Mindy and Raymond Griffith of St. Helens, told police the driver pointed a black semi-automatic pistol and fired. Mindy Griffith, who was driving, was struck in the face by glass fragments.

The 36-year-old woman was taken to a hospital to have the fragments removed from her eyes.

“Just driving down the road, and literally, just boom,” Mindy said. “I seen it, got the words ‘Oh My God’ out of my mouth and it hit.”

Raymond Griffith was not reported to have been hurt.

The Oregon State Police released a photo of the assailant’s vehicle on June 7. Anyone with information is urged to contact OSP Sgt. Luke Schwartz at 800.452.7888.
