Wrong-way driver causes rollover crash on SR-522
WOODINVILLE, Wash. - Police are searching for a wrong-way driver who ran a King County deputy off the road Saturday morning.

Detectives say the deputy was responding to reports of a driver headed westbound in the eastbound lanes of SR-522 around 1 a.m.

"As the sergeant crested the hill, he observed the vehicle coming directly at him," Washington State Patrol Sergeant Matthew Sloan said.

The deputy swerved to miss the vehicle, struck a concrete barrier, and rolled his patrol car.

The wrong-way driver kept going in what troopers say was either a silver or maroon truck.

The patrol car was totaled, and the deputy was taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries to his hand.
