BEAVERTON, OR (KPTV) -

A K-9 tracked down a suspect who ran away after crashing his friend’s car on an off-ramp from Highway 217 to Highway 26.  

Police responded to the scene at around 7 a.m. Wednesday.

Officers said the incident began when one car rear-ended another car.

The two drivers stopped and began to exchange information, when police said one of them ran away toward the Sunset Transit Center.

Eastbound MAX lines were delayed at the center while police searched the area.

A Beaverton Police Department K-9 team located the suspect near the transit center.

Police said the suspect ran away because he was driving his friend’s car and did not have insurance.

The suspect’s name has not been released.
