Estacada, Ore. – A driver fleeing Clackamas County deputies crashed his rental car near Estacada.

Once police arrived at the scene, the pair fled in a rented car2go Mercedes-Benz sedan.

The pursuit continued until around 11:21 p.m. when the driver lost control of the vehicle, rolling it onto its top.

22-year-old Francisco Javier Jr. was determined to be the driver. He was taken to the hospital along with his 19-year-old passenger. They were both treated for minor injuries.

Charges related to the pursuit will be forwarded to the Clackamas County District Attorney’s Office for consideration.
