Man injured when bus shelter hit

A woman has been arrested in connection with the crash early Sunday.


WALLA WALLA -- A Portland man was reported in critical condition today after a car smashed into a bus shelter early Sunday.

According to police reports, the crash was reported at 12:16 a.m. Sunday in front of 1120 West Rose St. when an eastbound car crossed into the westbound lane and then struck the bus shelter, shattering it into pieces.

A man standing in the shelter, Timothy R. Wood, 51, was taken to Providence St. Mary Medical Center and later airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. He is reported in critical condition today, said city police Officer Tim Bennett.

According to a probable cause statement filed in Walla Walla Superior Court today, the witness told police the car that struck the shelter sped off west on Rose Street. Marks on the roadway left by the damaged vehicle led police to a home at 1114 S.E. Scenic View Drive in College Place, where they arrested Marsha-Gaye M. Hogg, 33, of that address.

Hogg was booked into the Walla Walla County Jail on investigation of vehicular assault and hit and run. She was being held today on $10,000 bond, according to court records.
