FOREST GROVE, OR (KPTV) -

The Washington County Sheriff's Office said one deputy was injured after a woman rammed three patrol cars in Forest Grove Tuesday.

Deputies said the incident started around 3:45 a.m. on Highway 47. Dispatchers received a 911 call from a woman who said another driver was trying to ram the vehicle she was in with a man, another woman and a dog.

When deputies and officers from the Forest Grove Police Department caught up with the two vehicles, they said the woman chasing the other car took off, sparking a pursuit by deputies.

That pursuit stopped at a dead end on Poplar Street in Forest Grove, where the suspect rammed a sheriff’s office patrol car, turned and rammed a second patrol car.

A third patrol car was also damaged while taking the suspect into custody, deputies said.

Deputies identified the suspect as 38-year-old Crystal Elliot. She was taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation, then booked into the Washington County Jail.

Elliot faces three counts of first-degree attempted assault, third-degree assault, assault on a peace officer, attempt to elude, two count of first-degree criminal mischief and reckless driving. Deputies said Elliot also had outstanding warrants from Washington and Tillamook counties.

 The occupants of the vehicle being chased by Elliot were not injured in the incident, and one deputy suffered minor injuries when Elliot rammed his patrol car.
