On Thursday, December 13, 2012, a single suspect was reportedly involved in three hit-and-run incidents around Clackamas County before fleeing his vehicle. This suspect is now in custody.

The incident began at 10:49 a.m. on Dec. 13, when 911 was alerted to a hit-and-run collision on the offramp to Sunnyside Road from I-205 southbound.  The suspect vehicle reportedly crashed into two other vehicles on the onramp then fled the scene.  Two victims with injuries were transported by AMR.  Their conditions are unknown at this time.

The suspect vehicle in the case was reported as a white, larger 2-door pickup.

Following this first collision, a citizen began following the hit-and-run suspect vehicle while staying on the phone with 911 -- offering constant updates to authorities on the suspect vehicle's whereabouts. The citizen followed the suspect through west on Sunnyside Rd.  The suspect was reportedly running red lights and speeding.

The suspect vehicle then engaged in a second collision at 10:52 a.m. This collision was with one other vehicle at SE Harmony Rd and SE Linwood Rd. One victim was injured in this second collision and transported by ambulance. Their condition is unknown at this time.

A third, final collision happened at 10:56 a.m., on the 10500 block of Linwood, between King and Queen.  The vehicle collided with a fence. At this point, the suspect reportedly fled the vehicle to the northwest, running through a residential backyard.

Deputies arrived seconds after this third collision and gave chase. The suspect was described as being dressed all in black and carrying a backpack. Deputies set up containment, and witnesses pointed deputies in the direction of the suspect's flight.

At 11:03 a.m., the suspect was taken into custody near SE King Rd and SE Linwood Rd. He is identified as Bayron Rene Estrada Aldana (DOB 6/11/1979, age 33), of Happy Valley.

The suspect vehicle, which had heavy front-end damage, was towed.

Bayron Rene Estrada Aldana was reported to be uninjured and deputies have evidence to believe he was under the influence at the time of the incident.  He was transported to Clackamas County Jail and booked on charges of Hit and Run, Reckless Driving, Reckless Endangerment, and DUII.
