Suspected drunken driver arrested after freeway crash in Snoqualmie
A woman described by police as suicidal was arrested last night for investigation of DUI after she crashed her car in Snoqualmie, according to Issaquah police.
Police responded to a business in the 22500 block of Southeast 64th Place in Issaquah just after 7:30 p.m. after the 31-year-old woman made suicidal threats to her therapist. When officers tried to talk to the woman she refused to cooperate and drove off recklessly east on Interstate 90, police said.
The woman struck a guardrail as she exited I-90 in Snoqualmie and her car ended up in a wooded area, police said.
The woman was arrested for investigation of DUI by the State Patrol. Issaquah police will also seek charges of reckless driving and failure to obey a police officer.
