Washington State Trooper Andrew Boyer was dispatched to a report of a driver going west in the eastbound lanes of Highway 520, patrol spokeswoman Trooper Julie Judson told the Associated Press.
The crash disabled the patrol car with a broken axle. The wrong-way car was able to drive away. It continued to Interstate 5, still going the wrong direction before it broke down.
The driver got out and tried to run away by jumping over a barrier. He fell about 20 feet, was arrested by Seattle police and taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. The 26-year-old Seattle man apparently was under the influence of alcohol and will face drunken driving and other charges, Judson said.
