Summary of Newberg-Dundee Police Activity (Saturday evening / Sunday morning) - 05/16/21

Summary of Police Activity (May 15 to May 16, 2021):

In addition to other calls for service, the Newberg-Dundee Police responded to these high priority calls in the area on Saturday night and early Sunday morning.  These incidents are summarized in a single press release for public awareness.

At 8:48pm, a citizen reported a possible intoxicated driver headed into Newberg from Dundee.  An officer intercepted the vehicle, observed driving consistent with DUII, and attempted to pull the vehicle over.  The driver, identified as Mark Alan Krueger (60 y/o of Beaverton - photo attached), attempted to elude officers resulting in a vehicle pursuit into Washington County.  Due to the extreme risk the suspect placed upon the public and officers, tire deflation devices and a PIT maneuver were utilized to bring the vehicle to a stop just outside of Sherwood.  Krueger was arrested for DUII, Reckless Driving, and Felony Eluding in a Motor Vehicle.

At 10:54pm, Newberg-Dundee Police units responded to assist the Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office with a shooting incident that occurred on a highway near Sheridan.  YCSO subsequently arrested a suspect in that case.

At 11:00pm, NDPD officers responded to a vehicle that had collided with a tree at Mountainview & N. College St.  The involved driver at that scene, April Ellie Cooskey (42 y/o of Newberg), was determined to be under the influence of an intoxicant and arrested for DUII.

At 12:39am, an NDPD officer observed another vehicle driving erratically on Hwy 18 near the intersection with Hwy 99, south of Dundee.  A traffic stop was initiated after the officer observed several traffic violations consistent with DUII.  When the officer attempted to make contact with the male driver, he was discovered slumped over in the driver’s seat with an apparent gunshot wound to the head.  For reasons unknown at this time, it appears the suspect shot himself shortly after pulling the vehicle over and before the officer had approached the car.  A firearm was separated from the driver and officers immediately provided medical care to the man who was still conscious.  The driver was transported by Life Flight to an area hospital and is expected to survive.  Suicidal messages sent by the driver prior to the traffic stop have since been discovered by detectives.  The driver’s name will not be released at this time.

This single Saturday night patrol shift should bring to the public’s attention the serious problem of DUII, mental health crisis, and incidents of “road rage” by motorists on our roadways.  It should also highlight the dangers facing our police as we try to protect the public from these incidents.  We appreciate our partners at the Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office, Sherwood Police Department, King City Police Department, Tualatin Police Department, EMS personnel, and the Life Flight network for their hard work over the past 24 hours.
