January 22, 2013
Police said a suicidal woman fled from a therapist’s office in Issaquah and then crashed a vehicle in Snoqualmie.
Officers responded to the 22500 block of Southeast 64th Place in Issaquah at 7:37 p.m. Jan. 18 after the woman, a 31-year-old Klahanie resident, made suicidal threats to her therapist.
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.
Moments later, 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.
