State Trooper Injured by Drunk Driver

On Thursday morning, an Oregon state trooper was injured by a drunk driver that “drifted off the road and hit his parked cruiser.” Sean Russell, a Brookings local, was driving drunk his Dodge pickup truck on Highway 101. Sources stated that Russell’s blood alcohol content level was roughly about .18 percent. He “drifted onto the road’s shoulder going about 65 miles-per-hour,” when he hit the parked patrol car of Senior State Trooper-Jeff Johnson. Russell also hit a guard rail, which continued to be on the road for approximately 100 yards.

Johnson was immediately taken to Sutter Coast Hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries. Luckily, he did not receive any major injuries and was released. However, sources claim that “he did complain of back pain.” The drunk driver, Russell, did not receive any type of injuries whatsoever. He was apprehended and booked at the Curry Country jail. The following day he was charged and summoned to a court hearing.
