Smokey Point incident leaves one injured, possible drunk driver being sought

An incident at Smokey Point on Monday night left one person injured and a suspected drunk driver leaving the scene.
Keith Leary of the Washington State Patrol said that Arlington police were first sent to the scene, at the top of the off-ramp from northbound I-5 to Smokey Point Boulevard, around 7:30 p.m. on a report of a pedestrian being hit by a vehicle. But when they arrived, they found that wasn’t the case.
Instead, they found a child’s bike that had been run over and a man with a cut on his hand. By time troopers arrived, the story was becoming clearer.
According to Leary, a Dodge Durango driven by a 46-year-old Arlington woman had pulled up behind a Dodge pickup at the stoplight at the top of the off-ramp when the truck revved up, drifted backward and hit the Durango.
When the woman and her passenger, a 44-year-old Arlington man, got out of their SUV and approached the truck, the truck’s driver also got out and started an argument with the SUV passenger. View full post on “drunk” News
