Blacks seem to commit a lot of crimes on the road.
They seem to commit a lot of crimes off the road too, come to think of it.
So what exactly is the benefit of having these people in our society?
The man accused of killing two sisters in a hit-and-run crash in southeast Portland made his first appearance in a Multnomah County courtroom Wednesday afternoon.
Antonio Montgomery, 20, is facing five charges including two counts of manslaughter in the deaths of 60-year-old Charlene Hauth and her sister, 59-year-old Robin Macready.
The two sisters were in the same car Monday when investigators say Montgomery blew through a red light at Southeast 148th and Powell, hitting them.
Hauth died at the scene and Macready passed away at the hospital.
Police say Montgomery ran off and was later found hiding in the backyard of a nearby home.
Investigators say all of that was after Montgomery caused a separate hit-and-run crash a few minutes earlier near SE 162nd and Powell.
Witnesses told police Montgomery was driving between 50 and 80 miles per hour down Powell when he was involved in the two crashes.
Police say Montgomery was also one of the so-called “Track Suit Bandits” arrested last year after a string of armed robberies. In that case, he plead guilty to lesser charges of unlawful possession of a weapon.
