Narrative:

On November 10th, 2019 at about 8:24 pm Officers from the City of Bend Police Department responded to a reported Hit and Run motor vehicle crash in the area of NW Olney Avenue and NW Wall Street. Officers arrived in the area of the crash and determined a silver in color Chevy passenger car operated by a female driver caused a collision that involved three other vehicles. The female driver fled in her vehicle from the crash scene. Moments later a citizen caller to Deschutes County 911 reported a Chevy passenger car was crashed facing the wrong way (northbound) on the southbound exit to the Parkway at NW Revere Avenue. The citizen caller reported the female driver fled from the crashed vehicle. A description of the female driver was provided by the citizen caller. 

The female suspect was contacted by an assisting Oregon State Police Trooper. Bend Police Officers arrested the female for suspicion of DUII and Hit and Run. Through subsequent investigation Bend Police Officers learned the female suspect, identified as Katie Hall, had an infant child at her home. Officers conducted a welfare check on the two month old. Officers found the child home, alone on the hardwood floor of the residence. It appeared to the Officers that the child may have fallen from the bed where it had been left unattended. Paramedics responded and evaluated the child. The child did not require immediate medical attention. 

The City of Bend Police Department was assited by the Oregon State Police, The Oregon Department of Transportation and the Oregon Department of Human Services Child Welfare Division.
