Fugitive hit by police car leaves hospital for jail

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A fugitive from Montana injured during a confrontation with police on the Oregon coast has been released from a Portland hospital and taken to jail.

Oregon State Police say a trooper struck 30-year-old Dale Wallace with a patrol car Friday when Wallace pointed a gun at officers in Lincoln City.

Arrest warrants had been issued in Montana for Wallace and a companion, Sara Jo Johnson. They were accused of robbing a Butte coin shop in late December.

Johnson fatally shot herself late Friday after a four-hour standoff with law enforcement officers.

Wallace was flown to a Portland hospital with injuries described as serious. He's now lodged at the Multnomah County jail.
