Deputies arrested a woman who was driving a stolen car and rammed into a deputy’s car head-on two times Thursday afternoon, the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office announced Friday.
According to a news release, the woman was driving a stolen car in the area of Henry Road and Kickerville Road around 4:20 p.m. on Thursday.
Deputies tried to stop the woman at a red light at the intersection of Slater Road and Haxton Way when she rammed into a deputy’s patrol car head-on.
She then backed up and rammed the patrol car a second time, causing it to move sideways on the roadway.
The woman fled northbound on Haxton Way at 40-50 mph.
Deputies deployed spike strips and deflated all tires on the car. The car was safely stopped by a PIT maneuver in a Ferndale neighborhood, with one deputy sustaining minor injuries.
The woman was taken into custody without incident and booked into Whatcom County Jail on investigation of two counts of first-degree assault, attempting to elude a police vehicle, and third-degree possession of stolen property.
