Eugene, Ore. – On 6/18/2018 shortly before 1:00 am, an Oregon State Police Trooper attempted a vehicle stop on Marshall Avenue in Eugene. The suspect vehicle turned down a residential road and quickly did a U-turn and drove straight at the Trooper.
The Trooper discharged his firearm in the direction of the vehicle, which drove away in an unknown direction after almost hitting the Trooper.
Here are still shots from video of the suspect vehicle, which is described as a dark, two door sport coupe, possibly a 1990 to 1997 Mazda Miata. The vehicle is likely missing the rear fascia / bumper and may be a soft top convertible. The vehicle also has an exhaust system that is likely aftermarket and is louder than a stock exhaust system.
The Lane County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone who knows the location of the driver or vehicle involved in the above incident, or who has video surveillance of the involved area to include nearby roads, to call 541-682-4141.
