Hill told officers he was at the parking lot adjacent to Gilley Pool and the Jungle Jym waiting to meet his girlfriend and must have blacked out.“He said he pulled into the parking lot to wait for his girlfriend and that’s all he remembers until he woke up on the ground,” said McMinnville Police Department officer Bobby Hammond. “He said he must have blacked out because he didn’t know what happened.”Hammond says he spoke to witnesses who said they saw Hill walking around the pickup just prior to the crash.
