The Washington County District Attorney’s Office said Randall Todd Brown was under the influence of meth on September 1, 2018, when he was driving a stolen Honda Civic on West Union Road between Cornelius Pass and 185th. 

Brown crossed the center line and crashed into the women’s truck, injuring the two sisters in their 70s. 

Brown was airlifted to the hospital with critical injuries.

Investigators found two firearms, credit cards, a bag with dozens of car keys and a meth pipe in the Honda. 

Brown was arrested again in December 2018, when deputies monitoring a known drug house saw him in a stolen Subaru. The DA’s office said he had punched out the ignition and was using a screwdriver to operate the car. They also found drugs in Brown’s pocket.

Brown was convicted of felon in possession of a firearm, unlawful use of a vehicle, assault, DUII and delivery of methamphetamine for both incidents.
