Police: Argument in car leads to crash on MAX tracks

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Police said an argument between a driver and her passenger led to a crash on MAX tracks that disrupted service Thursday.

Officers found the Dodge Caravan high-centered on the northbound MAX tracks near North Interstate Avenue and Argyle Street at about 12:30 p.m.

Police called for paramedics to respond because the passenger tried to get out of the van as it was moving and was injured, officers said.

Angelinna Logan, 20, was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.

The driver, June Brogdon, 31, was cited for reckless driving and driving uninsured. She told investigators she was distracted because she was arguing with Logan before the crash.

A tow truck was called to remove the van. MAX service resumed after about one hour.

This is the second time in two days where a vehicle has halted MAX trains in Portland. On Wednesday, police said, a speeding driver crashed onto the tracks near Sunset Transit Center and shut down MAX service for nearly the entire day.
