Police: Drunken driver crashes into deputy patrol car
ALOHA, OR (KPTV) -
Hillsboro police arrested a suspected drunken driver in Aloha after he crashed into a Washington County Sheriff's Deputy patrol car early Sunday morning.
The crash happened at about 1:27 a.m. near Southwest Tualatin Valley Highway, the Washington County Sheriff's Office said. A sheriff's deputy was driving westbound when a 2007 Chevrolet Impala struck him one block west of Southwest 185th Avenue.
The driver of the Impala was 25-year-old Alfredo Losoya, of Gervais. Investigators said Losoya consumed alcohol at a bar near the highway prior to the crash. He did not suffer any injuries. Police arrested Losoya for DUII and released him from the Washington County Jail with a court date scheduled later this month.
Deputies reported minimal damage to the patrol car's right front bumper. The crash separated the Impala's front bumper from the vehicle. A local hospital treated the deputy for minor injuries.
