PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A woman accused of stealing a car at a Milwaukie hospital and then crashing it off the Hawthorne Bridge was sentenced to probation Tuesday.

Alisha Nicole Davis pleaded guilty to the charge of second-degree attempted robbery. She was initially charged with second-degree robbery and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle following her arrest in April 2015.

Police said Davis approached a woman sitting in her parked car at Milwaukie Providence Hospital and threatened to cut her with a knife if she didn't give up the car.

The victim told investigators she never saw a knife, but Davis took off with the car.

A short time later, police said Davis crashed through the guard rail on the east side of the Hawthorne Bridge and slammed into a building.

Dozens of people were at a homeless camp near the crash scene and said it was a "miracle" the car missed them.

Davis was sent to Oregon Health & Science University for treatment, but did not sustain any serious injuries.

A woman who was under the bridge was hurt by falling debris and was taken to the hospital, as well.

After pleading guilty to the reduced charge Tuesday, Davis was sentenced to five years probation, four months work release and ordered to continue mental health treatment.
