Hit-and-run driver crawls into hole and covers herself with dirt to hide from police after she ‘struck a five-year-old boy with her pickup’ Meet 36 y/o Marsha Yumi Perry of WA State.  That’s her mugshot… Scroll down to read more!

Meet 36 y/o Marsha Yumi Perry of WA State.  That’s her mugshot below…

Doesn’t look happy does she?  Well she shouldn’t.  On Friday, April 24th, 2015 Marsha got all up close and personal, having met “Ranger”, a Washougal, WA Police K-9 who was being handled by Officer Kyle Day, and who had tracked her through a field after she had allegedly hit a five (5) y/o boy with her truck before hiding from officers by crawling into a hole and covering herself with dirt.

Cops were called after the five (5) y/o boy had ridden his tricycle out of a driveway and was hit by a car around 6:00 pm.  Witnesses told police that Marsha had tried to drive off from the scene of the crash but that she was unable to do so, prompting her to get out of her Ford pickup truck and walk away.  

Ranger was able to track her scent near to the shallow hole in which Marsha was hiding.  After Officer Day, who could not see her, warned her that he was about to unleash the dog, “the ground moved, and she sat up”.  

Police said the boy suffered a cut to his face as well as scrapes to his knees and elbows, and he was taken to Peace Health Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver.  Marsha, on the other hand, was taken  to Clark County Jail, being charged with felony hit-and-run, driving with a suspended license and also on a misdemeanor warrant (for a previous arrested in Oregon in November 2014 on accusations of identity theft, being in possession of methamphetamine and providing false information to police.)   

Cops have stated that they do NOT believe that either alcohol or drugs were a factor, leading to the conclusion that Marsha likely fled because of her outstanding warrant.

Memo to Marsha (& the Folks):    Accidents (i.e. “spontaneous and unplanned occurrences”) can and do happen, but they only result in an arrest where criminal behavior is attached to the unforeseeable event.  If booze and dope were not involved then perhaps Marsha was not to blame in this case (I know, perhaps she was, she could have been speeding or texting or applying makeup or any of a number of things, but it’s just as likely that the victim rode out into the street leaving physics with no alternative… I’m just saying that without more evidence it’s impossible to say what actually happened).  Her decision to bail and bolt (hit and run) was, however, criminal in nature.  I am not a WA lawyer and cannot comment on matters of WA law or procedure but if their law is anything similar to Florida’s then a) there is a duty to remain on the scene of an accident (especially one involving injuries) and b) failure to do so is a criminal act.  Even if it was not an accident whatever crime may have occurred was seriously compounded by Marsha’s poor decision to flee.
