SEATTLE - Officers arrested a woman on suspicion of DUI after she ran a red light and crashed into a car with two Seattle police detectives inside, investigators said. The crash happened around 2:15 a.m. Friday at the intersection of First Avenue and Seneca Street.
Police said a preliminary investigation indicated that the detectives had a green light as they exited the Alaskan Way Viaduct heading east on Seneca.
Officers said a Volkswagen heading north ran a red light and slammed into the side of the unmarked police car.
The impact spun the Volkswagen around in the intersection and the detectives’ car came to rest a few car-lengths uphill.
The detectives received minor injuries and were transported to Harborview Medical Center as a precaution.
The woman was not injured.
Streets around the crash scene were closed for hours during the investigation.
