News Release from: Clackamas Co. Sheriff's Office

Please reference CCSO Case # 15-19306

At about 3:20 a.m. on Friday, July 17, 2015, deputies with the Wilsonville Police responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle with the occupants reported to be entering houses under construction. The construction is in the City of Wilsonville in the Villebois neighborhood.

The deputies located the suspect vehicle, and when they attempted to stop the vehicle, the suspect driver continued to drive.

The deputies followed the suspect vehicle toward Newberg and were joined by units from the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office and later by Newberg Police, including a CCSO police K9 unit.

The pursuit lasted about 14 minutes with numerous opportunities for the vehicle occupants to safely surrender to law enforcement. The pursuit travelled through Clackamas, Yamhill, and Marion counties. Deputies in the pursuit reported that the suspect driver was driving erratically and items were being thrown from the vehicle into the roadway.

At about 3:45 a.m., the suspect vehicle crashed on McKay Road in rural Marion County. The crash was initiated by a Pursuit Intervention Technique (PIT) maneuver that was approved by the supervisor and effected by a deputy. The area where the PIT was executed is rural, and at that time of morning there were no hazards on the roadway.

Medical aid was immediately initiated for the two occupants of the vehicle -- both of whom were reported as unconscious. Both individuals were transported to Emanuel Hospital by helicopter.

One of the individuals is believed to be in serious condition, but the injuries appear non-life threatening. The other person is in critical condition.

The Clackamas County Criminal Reconstruction and Forensics Team and Clackamas County and Marion County detectives are currently investigating the incident.

The two occupants of the car that crashed this morning during the pursuit are:

Supp, Gregory Douglas, age 31, of Hillsboro, Oregon
Supp has been treated and released from the hospital and has been arrested on outstanding felony warrants for parole violation related to delivery of methamphetamine and other charges. Charges in this case are expected after the investigation is completed.

Wildeboer, Courtney Gayle, age 23, address unknown
Wildeboer remains in critical condition. Wildeboer is on post-prison supervision for possession of methamphetamine.

Three Clackamas County cities -- Damascus, Happy Valley, and Wilsonville -- contract with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office to provide municipal police services.
