Woman flees police in Issaquah, crashes vehicle in Snoqualmie
January 22, 2013
Police said a suicidal woman fled from a therapist’s office in Issaquah on Jan. 18 and then crashed a vehicle in Snoqualmie.
Issaquah officers responded to a business in the 22500 block of Southeast 64th Place at 7:37 p.m. after the woman, a 31-year-old Klahanie resident, made suicidal threats to her therapist.
Once officers arrived, the woman did not cooperate with police and fled eastbound on Interstate 90. Police advised the Washington State Patrol and the Snoqualmie Police Department about the woman’s last known location.
Soon after the advisory, a Snoqualmie police officer saw the woman crash a vehicle at the Exit 27 off-ramp from Interstate 90. The vehicle came to a stop in a wooded area after hitting a guardrail and roadside electrical box.
Snoqualmie police took the woman into custody. Issaquah police assisted with the investigation.
The state patrol later arrested her for investigation of driving under the influence. Charges of reckless driving and failure to obey police are pending from Issaquah.
The case is under investigation by the Issaquah Police Department Patrol Division. People with questions about the case can call the on-duty supervisor at 837-3200.
