Off-duty SPD officer hurt in overnight crash

An off-duty Seattle police sergeant apparently caused a multiple-vehicle crash near Monroe early this morning, according to the State Patrol.

The 65-year-old officer failed to stop for traffic that had stopped for construction on Highway 522 at the Snohomish River Bridge around 1 a.m. and struck a Dodge pickup and a Volkswagen Jetta. The officer’s Ford Ranger pickup wound up in a ditch, according to a State Patrol news release.

The officer was transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, possibly with a broken femur, according to the State Patrol. KIRO-TV reports the sergeant was apparently on his way home from work when he fell asleep at the wheel.

Susan Gregg, Harborview spokeswoman, said the man is in satisfactory condition.

The other two drivers were not hurt.

Trooper Brandon Lee, a spokesman for the State Patrol, said there is no evidence that drugs or alcohol were involved.

Seattle police declined to comment on the officer other than to say he was off-duty.
