Two people were injured after their car was hit by a suspected DUII driver in Aloha.

The T-bone crash occurred just before 1:45 a.m. Sunday at the intersection of Southwest Bany Road and Southwest 170th Avenue, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators say the driver of a 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe, 34-year-old Edmund Scott of Beaverton, most likely ran a red light while traveling west on Southwest Bany Road and struck a 2015 Toyota Camry.

Both the driver and passenger of the Toyota received non-life-threatening injuries. They were taken to a local hospital where they were treated and later released.

Deputies determined Scott had been drinking and arrested him on charges of DUII and two counts of assault in the fourth degree.

Scott’s blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit, according to deputies. The sheriff’s office said they will have extra patrols out for the extended Fourth of July weekend that will concentrate on DUII and other traffic-related behavior that causes crashes.
