OTHELLO, Wash. -- A Warden Police Officer was involved in a two-vehicle collision Saturday while chasing a fleeing suspect, according to the Grant County Sheriff’s Office.
The officer stopped a car in Warden around noon. The car was reportedly driven by a man with a suspended license. Investigators said the suspect took off in the car and the Warden officer chased the vehicle several miles into the City of Othello.
The officer’s car then collided with another vehicle on 14th Street, authorities said.
The 19-year-old driver of that car suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to Othello Community Hospital. The Warden Police Officer was not injured.
The suspect driver got away and was still being sought by police.
