VIDEO: Oregon Deputy Hit Twice in 3 Months by Drunk Drivers

For the second time in 2 months, a Washington County Deputy found himself involved in a crash with a drunk driver.

Deputy David Huey was rear-ended for the first time on St. Patrick’s Day and ended up getting a concussion and missing 2 months of work, KOIN TV.

Because of that experience, early Sunday morning when Huey was helping another deputy with a stop involving an alleged drunk driver, he was “hyper aware.”

The deputies were conducting a field sobriety test on 23-year-old Yash Desai when 61-year-old Earl Smith slammed into the back of one patrol car. The impact caused a chain reaction that left four cars damaged.

Thankfully everyone involved in both incidents walked away with their lives, and Huey knows how lucky it is to be able to say that.

“Had I not maybe had that first accident, I may have not have seen that second [car] coming and who knows what would have happened,” Huey said.
