Police: “Designated Driver” Arrested For DUI After Hitting Two Cop Cars

SALEM, Ore. (CBS Seattle) – An Oregon woman crashed into two police cars parked on a highway near Salem with their emergency lights flashing, reports KATU-TV.

In the car were two highly intoxicated passengers and a “designated driver” with a blood alcohol content over twice the legal limit, said police.

Deputies arrested 26-year-old Mercede Lynn Ogan on DUI and reckless driving charges.

She told police she was driving because her friends were too drunk.

The sheriff’s office said the impact of the collision pushed one police car into another.

That car, and Ogan’s car, had to be towed away.

No one was hurt in the incident.
