Please reference CCSO Case # 23-011203

Just after midnight on Monday, May 29, 2023, a deputy contracted to the Wilsonville Police Department was monitoring traffic on I-5 near SW Wilsonville Road when he spotted a 2005 gray BMW 325i without license plates traveling southbound at 90 mph.

The deputy activated emergency lights and began traveling south on I-5 to catch up with the BMW.

The driver exited I-5, heading west on SW Wilsonville Road before crashing into a guardrail along a curve near the 16100 block of Wilsonville Road.

The suspect driver -- later identified as Wayne Douglas Davis, 47, of Independence -- exited the car and ran from the crash scene on foot, leaving a female passenger and a dog behind.

The BMW turned out to be stolen out of Salem. The passenger -- Alyssa Renee Wright, 32, of Salem -- had an active felony warrant from the Oregon State Parole Board.

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue paramedics arrived at the scene to evaluate Ms. Wright. The dog appeared to be uninjured and was transported to Clackamas County Dog Services.

Meanwhile, additional deputies from the Wilsonville Police Department and the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office had arrived at the scene to search for Davis. CCSO K9 Valli completed a successful dog track -- locating Mr. Davis in a ravine approximately 150 yards from the crash scene.
