Drunk Driver Hits Trooper

A suspected drunk driver slammed into the rear of a Washington State Patrol car early Saturday as the trooper was pulled over to arrest another driver on suspicion of DUI in Washington.

The incident happened at about 3:30 a.m. on Highway 167 just south of 37th Street NW after a trooper pulled over a white Ford Focus driven by a 36-year-old Auburn woman on suspicion of DUI.

The trooper had placed the woman in the back seat of his patrol car to arrest her, then got into the front seat of his car to wait for a tow truck. Just then, a red 1990 BMW driven by a 24-year-old Auburn woman crashed into the rear of the trooper’s car as it was parked on the right shoulder of the highway with its lights flashing.

The trooper and the first DUI driver sustained minor injuries in the crash, and were taken to Auburn General Hospital where he was read his rights and given an opportunity to speak to a Seattle DUI Lawyer. The driver of the BMW was arrested and booked into King County jail on suspicion of DUI.
