MONROE — A woman suspected of driving under the influence hit a King County Sheriff’s Office cruiser head-on Aug. 25 in a crash on U.S. 2 between Sultan and Monroe now faces felony charges.
The 21-year-old Arlington woman crossed the highway’s center line near Fern Bluff Road while heading west toward Monroe when the crash happened, the Washington State Patrol reported to media. She collided with the deputy’s SUV which was going the opposite direction.
She and the deputy were injured.
A photo from the Washington State Patrol showed both vehicles smashed grill-to-grill into each other on the eastbound shoulder of U.S. 2. The woman had a 2020 Nissan Altima; the deputy was in a Chevrolet Tahoe police rig.
The driver was jailed on charges of vehicular assault and third-degree assault of a public official. Vehicular assault, a felony, can be charged if an intoxicated driver hurts someone else substantially.
The crash closed the highway for three hours.
