Date: 11/20/2020


On 11/19/2020 at approximately 8:15 pm, Milwaukie Police responded to a single vehicle crash into a building (Wichita Feed and Hardware) located at, 6089 SE Johnson Creek Blvd Milwaukie, Oregon. When police arrived, they discovered a red Toyota Tacoma had crashed into the east side of the building, breaching the exterior wall.

The Toyota truck was occupied by the driver, 38-year-old Matthew Hoffman who was unconscious, and his passenger 42-year-old Kimberly Smith. Both Mr. Hoffman and Mrs. Smith were trapped in the vehicle as a result of the crash. Clackamas  Fire District #1 responded and  quickly began to  stabilize the building around the vehicle and freed Mr. Hoffman and Mrs. Smith. Mr. Hoffman was treated by medics and transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Mrs. Smith was uninjured during the crash and declined medical treatment.

At the time of the crash, the business owner was in the building but was not injured during the incident. The investigation revealed that Mr. Hoffman experienced a medical emergency while driving west bound on SE Johnson Creek Blvd., causing him to veer off the roadway and crash into the Wichita Feed and Hardware business.

No citations were issued, or arrests made.
