Authorities: Woman critical after ex crashes into her car

December 31, 2018

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say a Washington state woman is in critical condition after her estranged husband intentionally slammed his vehicle into her car.

The News Tribune reports the 37-year-old man T-boned her car while driving more than 50 mph (80 kph), causing both vehicles to crash in Parkland on Sunday.

The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department says the man was released from the hospital and arrested on suspicion of assault, reckless endangerment, driving with a suspended license and violation of a protection order.

The 34-year-old woman was granted a restraining order against the man last week, claiming he had threatened to kill her, was violent and was stalking her.

Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer says the woman was fleeing to her mother’s home when her car was hit.
