Woman Indicted for Crash that Injured Eugene Officers
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – A Springfield woman has been indicted in connection with a traffic crash that injured two Eugene police officers.
The Register-Guard reports 25-year-old Jade Jensen was charged in April by the Lane County District Attorney’s Office on assault and driving under the influence of intoxicants.
A grand jury indicted her last week on multiple counts of assault, recklessly endangering, reckless driving and driving under the influence of intoxicants.
Jensen was arrested Friday and booked her into jail. She pleaded not guilty Monday.
An arrest warrant affidavit says Jensen was driving a car with passengers early July 26, 2018 when she ran stop sign and struck a Eugene police patrol SUV.
The two officers inside were hurt and out of work for two weeks.
A breathalyzer test showed Jensen’s blood alcohol content was over twice the legal limit at .21%.
