Although Washington State DUI numbers seem to be ever increasing, the numbers of drunken drivers arrested by the Washington State Patrol over the Christmas weekend holiday were actually down. The Washington State Patrol arrested 161 drivers suspected of being impaired by drugs and/or alcohol over that period. That is down from 194 arrests during the same period last year. Even though DUI numbers were down, fatalities rose in numbers. There were three fatal collisions compared to none last year. One of the fatalities included suspicion of DUI. It occurred on Highway 2 near the Hewitt Avenue trestle in Snohomish County. Troopers allege that an impaired driver went around barricades and drove onto a pedestrian walkway, killing one person and injuring another.
