Stolen car swipes Clark County patrol unit

Posted: Updated:
CLARK COUNTY, WA (KPTV) -

Clark County sheriff's deputies are searching for the driver of a stolen car that hit a patrol unit during a chase early Wednesday morning.

At 4:18 a.m., a deputy spotted a silver Honda sedan driving recklessly through a neighborhood in the Five Corners area, investigators said.

The driver of the car abruptly sped away and drove into a dead-end cul-de-sac when the deputy tried to stop him near 76th Street and Covington Road.

The deputy then tried to stop the car again, but the driver suddenly turned and accelerated in the opposite direction, brushing against the push bumper on the front of the marked patrol car, authorities told FOX 12.

The driver then sped away.

The deputy was not hurt, and other than some slight scrape marks on the push bars, the patrol car was not damaged.

The suspect is described as a white man in his mid 20s with short cropped hair.

The silver Honda sedan he was driving was confirmed to be a reported stolen car out of Portland.

Deputies later found the car abandoned a short distance away from the original traffic stop.

A K-9 search of the area did not locate the suspect.

The stolen car was impounded.
