Springfield woman arrested after pursuit, locking herself in North Bend home
NORTH BEND, Ore. -- A Springfield woman faces multiple charges following a pursuit with police through Coos County that ended in a North Bend RV park.
Around 12:15 a.m. Tuesday, Coos County Sheriff’s deputies observed a vehicle southbound on Highway 101 near the Saunders Lake area at speeds in excess of 90 miles per hour.
Deputies attempted traffic stop, but the suspect vehicle made an abrupt U-turn and headed back northbound on Hwy 101.
The vehicle did not yield to the emergency lights and sirens and continued fleeing from pursuing deputies at speeds again in excess of 90 miles per hour, the report said.
Police say the vehicle continued back and forth on Hwy 101 between milepost 226 and Wildwood Road, making multiple abrupt and dangerous U-turns. During one of the U-turns, the vehicle nearly missed hitting a police vehicle head on.
The vehicle ultimately turned onto Wildwood Road and continued south on Wildwood Road at speeds of approximately 50 miles per hour, police said, before turning into the Ocean Pines RV Park at 69262 Wildwood Road in North Bend.
The driver sped through the RV park before turning into a driveway and fleeing on foot, the report said.
The suspect, identified later as 35-year-old Alison Anne Morgan of Springfield, ran into a residence at the RV park where she locked the owner of the trailer out of her home and hid inside, police said.
With the consent of the homeowner, deputies forced entry into the RV where she was found hiding in the bathroom.
Morgan was arrested on charges of Attempt to Elude in a Vehicle, Attempt to Elude on Foot, Reckless Driving, Recklessly Endangering and Interfering with a Peace Officer.
She was transported to the Coos County Jail where she was lodged on $60,000 bail and issued citations for multiple traffic violations.
