That’s some good sweeping, boys

May 21, 2005 at 6:06 pm (Portland, Random)

I didn’t know street sweepers could go that fast.

Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Joel Manley said Griffin
was high on methamphetamine when she came across the street sweeper,
parked with its engine running about 3 a.m. She jumped in the vehicle,
about the size of a small pickup, and headed for Interstate 205.

After a spike strip on I-205 punctured one of the sweeper’s tires,
Griffin exited to Oregon 99E, running red lights and stop signs, and
reaching speeds of 80 mph, Manley said.
When she reached Aurora, Griffin swerved onto the wrong side of the
road and hit a mailbox post before veering back and driving off the
road, authorities said.
