STEVENS COUNTY, Wash. — The Stevens County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) arrested a man for DUI after they say he crashed into an ambulance as part of a road rage incident. It happened on Monday.
The Sheriff’s Office said the man “felt like the ambulance had pulled out in front of him and was now driving to slowly for his liking.”
SCSO said when the ambulance and driver of the truck reached an intersection the man rammed into the side of the ambulance and became stuck. No one was hurt but a deputy happened to be driving by as the scene unfolded.
Deputies found beer and marijuana in the truck and according to the SCSO post they determined the driver had been using both. The driver was arrested for DUI and taken to the Stevens County Jail.
Here is the narrative as posted by the Stevens County Sheriff’s Office:
Road rage incident leads to DUI arrest of local man.
On 5/16/22 a fire district 7 ambulance was headed back to the station. That is when a local man decided that he felt like the ambulance had pulled out in front of him and was now driving to slowly for his liking. When the vehicles reached an intersection the ambulance came to a stop and the driver of the second vehicle decided to confront the crew. However he did so by ramming the side of the ambulance and becoming stuck. Luckily no one was injured. It also just so happened that Deputy House drove by right as the incident was unfolding. Things then went even more sideways for the driver as upon being contacted it was observed that he had a few road sodas and some of that legal lettuce in his possession. (that’s beer and marijuana for most people) It was also determined that he had been enjoying both while driving. The driver was then arrested for DUI and processed for such. He got an all-inclusive stay at the Stevens County Jail.
