The original traffic collision occurred just before 6:30AM on the 8600 block of Sunset Blvd.  Deputies were dispatched to the scene and arrived in seconds to see one party in the collision leaving the scene.   They pulled up behind the vehicle about a tenth of a mile away, near Mel’s Diner.

That’s when the suspect vehicle went into reverse and rammed into the front of a Sheriff’s Department patrol car.  Deputies quickly took steps to prevent the driver from further movement, including breaking the window to access the female suspect so she could be taken into custody.

According to Sgt. Bowman of the Sheriff’s Department, the suspect said she was having problems with her transmission.   They don’t believe that she intentionally rammed the patrol car, however the driver was taken into custody for the hit and run.

Damage to the patrol car was great enough that deputies on the scene were not immediately sure if the car could be driven from the scene.
