When you run out of gas along Interstate 5, the last thing a person probably suspects is that a woman is going to jump on top of your vehicle and break the windshield.
Nonetheless, that's exactly what happened to two women on Jan. 4. According to the Oregon State Police, on Saturday, two woman were traveling northbound on Interstate 5 when they ran out of gas near milepost 228 around 4:30 p.m. As the two women, ages 61 and 53, were on the phone attempting to make arrangements for gas to be brought to their location, a barefoot female approached their car.
Taking precaution, the two women in the car rolled up the windows and locked the doors. That's when the barefoot female, later identified as Victoria Dawn Lohmann, 24, of Aumsville, dropped her pants, exposed herself and proceeded across Interstate 5 toward the southbound lanes. Shortly thereafter, Lohmann returned to the disabled vehicle, climbed up on the hood and jump on it. While the two occupants of the vehicle were on the phone reporting the incident to a 9-1-1 operator, Lohmann jumped on the windshield with such force that it began to cave in. Lohmann then jumped off the car and ran across the interstate.
Unaware of the incident, an Oregon State Police trooper pulled up behind the disabled car to determine if any help was needed. The two women told the trooper what had occurred and where Lohmann had been headed.
The trooper coordinated other responding troopers and Linn County Sheriff's Office deputies to the scene. They quickly found Lohmann and took her into custody without further incident. Albany Fire Department personnel responded to the scene and treated minor cuts to Lohmann's feet, hands, and face that she received when damaging the vehicle. She was taken to Linn County Jail where he was lodged for Criminal Mischief in the First Degree, Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree, and two counts of Recklessly Endangering Another Person. A suspected controlled substance was found on her person and will be submitted to the OSP Forensic Services Division Crime Lab for analysis.
