Avelino Gines was lodged in the Clackamas County Jail after his pastor called police to facilitate the suspect turning himself in, and he was subsequently charged with hit-and-run, a Class B felony.

Mary Denise Richey, 40, died Wednesday morning after she was struck on Highway 99E south of Boardman Avenue about 6 a.m. She had exited a Tri-Met bus, was struck in the middle of the two southbound lanes, and dragged about 100-feet in her wheelchair, police said.  Richey was transported to Oregon Health Sciences University where she died about an hour later.

A green 1995 Ford Econline van believed to have been driven by Gines was seized from the suspect’s apartment complex parking lot in the 4500 block of SE Roethe Road and was transported to the OSP Portland Metro Forensic Lab for processing, a news release stated.
