A man accused of driving into three people on a Gresham sidewalk then driving off appeared in court on Monday. He's facing more charges for allegedly trying to cover it up.

33-year-old Sky Marsh is in jail on several charges including tampering with evidence, and one of his neighbors says he witnessed him trying to cover up the evidence.

Police say around 1 a.m. on Friday, Marsh jumped the curb on SE 181st in Gresham and hit three people on the sidewalk.

Arthur Zander, 33, was treated and released from the hospital after the incident. 23-year-old Emma Laflin remains in the hospital along with 33-year-old Brandi Wagner, who is in serious condition.

Police put out a description of the car involved, a '95 red Lincoln with Colorado plates and front end damage.

Over the weekend, Don Jaccaud says he saw that car being towed.

"So a tow truck came. There were a couple of police there," said Jaccaud.

Jaccaud lives across the street from Marsh. He says he'd seen the Lincoln parked out front many times, until late last week.

"That Lincoln, they all of a sudden covered it up the other day with a tarp. It was about halfway in that garage. I think it's a half garage."

News of the hit-and-run made the rounds on local media all day and night Friday. By Saturday, police say Marsh turned himself in.

Marsh is being charged with felony hit-and-run, tampering with evidence, reckless driving, reckless endangering, and assault in the second and third degree.

Marsh is due back in court next week.
