PORTLAND, Ore. — Police say a 20-year-old motorist crashed into a Jeep — which killed a passenger — then fled and was found hiding in a backyard pool in southeast Portland.
The Oregonian/OregonLive reported Antonio Montgomery is accused of manslaughter, assault, burglary and other crimes, according to jail records.
The crash killed 60-year-old Charlene Hauth. The Jeep driver remains hospitalized.
Police said Montgomery crashed the BMW he was driving into a Ford Focus on Monday afternoon and sped away. Police said he then drove on Powell Boulevard through a red light and collided with the Jeep.
Hauth died at the scene. A resident said he spotted Montgomery in his pool and called police.
Court records show Montgomery was convicted in April on a felony fleeing charge and is currently accused of driving with a suspended or revoked license.
It wasn’t known if he has a lawyer.
