A suspected DUII driver is accused of crashing one car, walking home and getting a second car to try and tow out the first car.
Oregon State Police said Leo Brown, 54, of Mulino, crashed the second car, as well.
A trooper arrived at South Eldorado Road and Highway 213 in Mulino late Monday night. The trooper said Brown was wearing a light jacket, thermal long underwear and no pants with tennis shoes at the time.
Investigators said Brown had crashed his 1994 Nissan Sentra through large bushes and small trees off the road. The car continued about 300 feet before getting stuck in the mud.
Police said Brown then walked back to his home, got a second car and drove it back to where the first crash happened. The second car then went off the road a short distance from the first car, according to troopers, and came to rest off the highway with the back end sticking straight up in the air.
Brown was arrested and charged with DUII-controlled substance and reckless driving.
He was cited and released. Other charges may be pending in the case.
