News Release
Fleeing Motorist Crashes After Attempting to Elude Yamhill County Deputy (Photo) - 11/02/17

For Immediate Release
November 2, 2017

Today, at approximately 11:10 a.m. a Yamhill County Sheriff Deputy attempted to stop a white 1996 Nissan Altima for a traffic violation on N.E. Alpine Avenue in the City of McMinnville. The driver fled and attempted to elude the deputy, eventually reaching speeds in excess of 70 mph. The deputy began to slow his pursuit and lost sight of the Nissan as it approached N.E. Baker Street. The deputy proceeded north on Westside Road, leaving the city limits of McMinnville and found that the Nissan had crashed on Westside Road just south of its intersection with Poverty Bend Road.
The male driver was trapped inside the vehicle and was eventually extricated by medical personnel. He was identified as 46 year old Jody Christopher Bogosian of Lafayette. Bogosian, who is on supervision for drug offenses, had been cited by law enforcement the day prior for driving while suspended.
The evidence at the scene was consistent with the Nissan leaving the road surface and hitting a dirt embankment, causing the vehicle to roll over. The car came to rest in the middle of the roadway.
Bogosian was transported by rescue units to the Willamette Valley Medical Center with serious injuries. At the time of this release he is in stable condition. The criminal offenses are being investigated by the Yamhill County Sheriff's Office and the crash is being investigated by the McMinnville Police Department with the assistance of the Oregon State Police.
