County: Multnomah

Disposition: Alleged

Alleged: Craig Brian Day, II

Police said a drunk driver hit a pedestrian with his SUV then drove into an apartment building.

The crash happened early Sunday morning on Powell Blvd in Gresham. Officers said Craig Brian Day II drove his Nissan Xterra SUV up on the sidewalk, hitting Joshua Grant.

Grant suffered a broken leg, but his dog was killed in the crash. He had been out walking the Labrador retriever at the time.

Grant was listed in "fair" condition at OHSU on Sunday afternoon.

After Day hit Grant and his dog, witnesses said his SUV flipped several times and smashed into a storage unit.

"I heard like a loud screeching sound then I heard like a big bang," said neighbor Hilario Jimenez.

Nobody inside the building was hurt, but the SUV landed just a few feet from Jimenez's window.

The SUV also almost hit Vern Wood's apartment.

"I had debris in front of both of my doors, so I couldn't even get out," he said. "I finally crawled over a bunch of stuff to get out of here."

Day now faces charges of driving under the influence of intoxicants, reckless driving, assault, criminal mischief and animal abuse.
