Drunk Driver Gets DUI After Crashing Into Police Cars


The Statesman Journal reported that Mercede Linn Ogan, a 26 year old female, received a DUI after she allegedly slammed into the rear of two police cars.  According to the news source, Ogan crashed her 2003 Ford Focus into two police patrol cars that had stopped on the side of Liberty Road S near Browning Avenue S in Salem, Oregon. Although the patrol cars had their flashing lights turned on, Ogan still managed to rear-end both of the cars.  It was stated that one of the officers observed a vehicle headed right toward them…and pulled the other out of the way before the vehicle collided into them.

Ogan hit the rear-end of the cars with so much force that one of them managed to hit the car in front of it. Luckily, nobody died or was severely injured. However, the legal officers came to the conclusion that Ogan was supposed to be the designated driver for the two passengers, who appeared to deputies to be highly intoxicated. After administering her several field sobriety tests, Ogan was charged with a DUI and various counts of reckless driving. She was arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail. It was determined that she had a blood alcohol content level that was twice the legal limit.
