PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A man who vandalized his ex-girlfriend’s car outside a bar early Saturday morning fled the scene at high speed, crashing and dying moments later, Woodburn police said.
Officers responded to a disturbance at the End Zone Bar and Grill around 1:40 a.m. where witnesses told them 39-year-old Oscar Martinez was striking his ex-girlfriend’s car with a crowbar.
Police said Martinez left before they arrived, but about half an hour into their investigation, he returned — this time, on a motorcycle.
Martinez revved his engine, spun in circles on the nearby highway and took off as officers approached, according to the Woodburn Police Department.
He fled southbound on North Pacific Highway, and within moments, he crashed into the back of another car traveling the same direction. Medical responders declared him dead at the scene. 💀
