Alleged Drunk Driver Hits Two Light Poles

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. -- An alleged drunk driver veers off the road and takes down two light posts. Then, the driver takes off back onto the freeway, leaving lots of debris behind.

Troopers say that the women seemed heavily intoxicated. Three cars hit the debris, causing damage and flat tires. Troopers believe the woman got on I-182 West from the 4th Street on-ramp.

She then swerved off the road, hit one light post and then the other. The woman then took off on the freeway, her car damaged but still driveable.

Troopers later arrested the woman. They say she admitted to having too much to drink but refused to take both the breathalyzer and the blood test. With her refusal, she will have her license suspended for a year. Troopers say fortunately no one was seriously hurt.
