DUII CRASH: 12:30 a.m., 600 block of Southeast Crystal Lake Drive, Corvallis. Police responded after a man living on the 600 block of Southeast Crystal Lake Drive reported someone had crashed into his retaining wall and the driver fled the scene. Police reportedly determined Marika Willa Darlynn Lappe-Weiss, 19, was drinking with a friend at a residence on Southeast Alexander Avenue. Lappe-Weiss reportedly attempted to leave in her car but crashed on the property, so she drove her mother’s car from the residence before crashing in the front yard of the home on Southeast Crystal Lake Drive. Police contacted Lappe-Weiss several hours after the crash, at which point she reportedly had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent. Lappe-Weiss is charged with driving under the influence of intoxicants and hit and run.
