FEDERAL WAY, Wash. — A woman was arrested Saturday morning after allegedly driving drunk and smashing into a Washington State Patrol car.

At about 5 a.m., a state trooper had just cleared a traffic stop and was sitting on the right shoulder of Interstate 5, near 320th Street in Federal Way, when the woman struck his vehicle.

The trooper’s car was completely smashed and the woman’s car came to rest on its side.

The woman was arrested for DUI following the collision.

Both suffered minor injuries in the crash.

Why, take the chance of driving when you're drunk? not worth the expense, insurance premium rate goes up, you've got yourself a record on file, most likely will be sued!!!!

Good thing the state patrol warned us about fireworks, because the roads aren't dangerous at all. Glad the trooper was ok

I'm confused how a car parked on the right shoulder gets hit on the side furthest away from the travel lanes. Was it a really wide shoulder and the lady tried passing him on the right?
