9:34 p.m. — Milton-Freewater police officers and medics dealt with an intoxicated woman who fell or stepped out of a moving vehicle.

Police Chief Doug Boedigheimer reported Amber Rae Richardson, 37, was the passenger in a Ford Ranger pickup her significant other, Curt Wayne Willard, 57, was driving. Both live in Milton-Freewater. Willard told police Richardson had been drinking and was intoxicated, so he was driving north on North Main Street to take her home. Richardson didn’t want to go home but wanted to go drinking.

Willard refused to accommodate, according to the police chief, so Richardson opened the passenger door of the pickup, which was traveling at approximately 20 mph, and either fell or stepped out on the 900 block of North Main.

A witness called 911. Milton-Freewater police arrived and found Richardson lying beside the sidewalk with the 911 caller rendering first aid to a head wound. Richardson appeared to be highly intoxicated, according to Boedigheimer, and combative with officers and medics, who soon took her to Providence St. Mary Medical Center, Walla Walla. Boedigheimer also reported this is not a criminal event.
