Grants Pass, Ore. – A Grants Pass woman was arrested following a Saturday night fatal hit and run on Interstate 5.
According to Oregon State Police, a woman driving a Subaru Legacy on I-5 southbound near milepost 59 rear-ended a Volkswagen Jetta driven by 62-year-old Glendale resident Kim Parsley.
The driver of the Subaru allegedly fled the scene of the crash in her vehicle.
Police said the crash flipped the Volkswagen onto its top and pushed it into a guardrail. Parsley was trapped in the vehicle until emergency responders were able to extricate him. He sustained critical injuries in the crash.
Kim Parsley’s passenger, identified by police as 18-year-old Ashlan Parsley, was able to remove herself from the wrecked vehicle, but sustained serious injuries.
OSP said Kim Parsley later died from his injuries at the hospital.
Around 20 minutes after the crash, OSP said a trooper pulled over a vehicle for light violations about a mile from the crash scene. Once the 2010 Subaru Legacy was stopped, the trooper realized the vehicle had been involved in a crash.
The driver of the Subaru, identified as Lindsey Johnson, was arrested for DUII.
As of Monday morning, Johnson’s charges included manslaughter, assault, reckless driving and failure to perform the duties of a driver. The DUII charge was not included the list of charges on the Josephine County Jail’s online inmate roster.
