August 8, 2019

ARLINGTON, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say two Arlington police officers suffered minor injuries when their vehicle was struck by a suspected drunken driver on State Route 530.

According to the Washington State Patrol, the crash happened at about 1:45 a.m. Thursday.

KOMO reports a 24-year-old woman was driving with her headlights off in a dark-colored vehicle when she crashed into the Arlington police vehicle, which was attempting to turn left across her lane of traffic.

Both the training officer and officer-in-training in the police vehicle were taken to Cascade Valley Hospital, along with the other driver.

The officers have since been released. The woman was later booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of DUI and driving without headlights.
