Sisters woman arrested after crash in Redmond

A Sisters woman was arrested for DUII and reckless driving after a crash in downtown Redmond that damaged several vehicles.

On Friday, January 3, shortly after 3 p.m., Redmond Police officers and Redmond Fire & Rescue personnel responded to a multi-vehicle crash at the intersection of SW 6th Street and SW Cascade Avenue in downtown Redmond.

According to Redmond Police reports, a Toyota 4Runner side-swiped a parked Ford pickup on NW 6th Street near NW Greenwood Avenue and then continued driving south. The 4Runner entered downtown Redmond, a 20-mph zone, at speeds reported to be close to 50 mph. The sidewalks were filled with afternoon shoppers and diners, with much of the on-street parking spaces occupied.

Police report that the 4Runner swerved to the left and rear-ended a parked GMC Terrain. The force of the collision launched the unoccupied GMC into a street tree, and then across SW Cascade Avenue. The GMC collided with a parked Toyota Corolla. The 4Runner was disabled at the crash scene after it came to a stop on the sidewalk.

The driver of the 4Runner was identified as Ashley Clary, a 28-year-old woman from Sisters. Clary was transported to St. Charles Redmond for minor injuries. Clary was subsequently arrested for DUII-alcohol, reckless driving, four counts of criminal mischief in the second degree, and misdemeanor hit and run. She was released at the hospital with a citation to appear in Deschutes County Circuit Court.
