Head-On Crash Leads To Hit & Run, DUII Arrest (Photo) - 06/17/24

On Wednesday, June 12, 2024, around 10:32 PM, LCPD Officers responded to a head-on traffic collision on N Highway 101 near NE West Devils Lake Rd. One of the involved drivers fled the scene of the collision prior to officers arrival. The victim driver did not report any injuries. Officers began an investigation into the crash and were initially unable to locate the suspect vehicle. 

Around 11:45 PM, a witness called LCPD to report a vehicle, matching the description of the suspect vehicle, had pulled into the South Circle-K Gas Station with heavy front-end damage and smoke coming from the engine. LCPD Officers quickly responded and located Heather Callin, age 45 of Lincoln City, in the driver seat. 

Base on the incident investigation, Heather Callin was arrested on charges of DUII, Fail to Perform Duties as a Driver (Hit & Run), and Reckless Driving. She was subsequently transported to the Lincoln County Jail where she was lodged on the listed charges. 

The Lincoln City Police Department would like to thank the observant citizen witness for their assistance in locating the involved vehicle and driver and helping to take an intoxicated driver off the streets. This is a great example of how the partnership with our community members help make the community safer for everyone.
