Suicidal male

Police went to the Sunset Beach area Jan. 17 at 3:10 p.m. looking for a young man whose mother, located in Washington, notified police of her son’s mental status. She said the 19-year-old, who lives in Washington, made several comments indicating self-harm. Clatsop County deputies located the young man first; they initiated contact and the male agreed to go to the hospital. Deputies retained three firearms for safe-keeping.

Open container citations

A yellow Mazda crashed Jan. 17 at 5:04 p.m. on U.S. Highway 101 and the U.S. Highway 26 junction after the driver took the curve at too high a speed and slid off the roadway. No injuries were reported. The driver and two other occupants of the car were cited for open container; the driver received additional citations including driving without insurance. Triangle Towing arrived on scene to impound the Mazda to Cannon Beach police. Mairsela Miguel Gomez, 23; Esmeralda Miguel-Andres, 18; and Josefina Jasmin Ramirez, 24, were given a courtesy lift to a motel in Seaside.

Minor injuries after crash

Two Seaside women were involved in a crash Jan. 18 at 11:22 a.m. on U.S. Highway 101 near milepost 16. Traffic traveling northbound came to a halt due to a piece of machinery that fell off a trailer into the road. The first car stopped to help the owner move the item; the car behind her also stopped. The third car did not see the other two stopped and crashed into the second car which pushed it into the first. Minor injuries were reported by two of the drivers. Two cars were towed by Gary’s Tow.

Portland woman charged with assault

Troopers went to a location on U.S. Highway 26 and Bear Road for a report of a fight between a Portland man and a Portland woman. Jasmine Elizabeth Lawson, 23, was arrested on scene and charged with assault, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief. She was checked for injuries and medically cleared by staff at Columbia Memorial Hospital before being transported for lodging at the Clatsop County jail.

Car slides into trees

A 22-year-old man told troopers Jan. 25 at 8:59 a.m., he was traveling on U.S. Highway 26 near milepost 22 when he lost control on the slippery roads, skidded, and slid off the road into the forest. The car was badly damaged but there were no injuries. The driver was cited for being uninsured. A wrecker towed the car out of the trees, and the vehicle’s owner who was not the driver, said they would return later with a trailer to tow it away. The car was tagged for removal within 24 hours. It’s unclear how the driver, the car owner, and their passenger, another male, left the area.
