A Spokane woman was injured after a suspected drunken driver hit her car early Thursday morning in Spokane Valley.
Russell E. Moody, 28, of Cut Bank, Montana, collided with Pamela O. Danner, 48, at the intersection of East Broadway Avenue and state Route 27 just after 1:30 a.m. Thursday, the Washington State Patrol said in a news release.
Danner was taken to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center by ambulance. Moody is suspected of driving under the influence and was arrested on investigation of vehicular assault.
Investigators believe Moody ran a red light at the intersection, but that is still under investigation, Trooper Frank Sweet said.
