Suspect arrested in hit-run that hurt 82-year-old

HILLSBORO — A suspect has been accused of hit-and-run in a crash that broke the legs of an 82-year-old Washington County man who was crossing a road to his mailbox.

The victim, Walter Wiese, is listed in serious condition. His wife, Ruth, told KGW-TV he had surgery and he could come home in a few weeks.

The Washington County sheriff's office said a tip led deputies Thursday night to 42-year-old Joe Louis Davis of Beaverton.

The sheriff's office says the tipster told deputies that Davis drove a Mazda similar to one described in news reports and had left a nearby job site minutes before the crash, which happened about 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Deputies said they seized a damaged Mazda found in a garage.
