PORTLAND, Ore.-- After two rollover crashes, deputies arrested a dozen drivers for DUII violations on the first Friday night this summer.
Washington County Sheriff's deputies made 12 arrests for driving under the influence of intoxicants.
One incident was a crash reported shortly after midnight at Northwest Cornelius Pass Road and Old Cornelius Pass Road. According to officials on scene, a passenger in a Dodge SUV pulled the steering wheel to avoid hitting a deer on the roadway. This caused the driver to lose control of the SUV resulting in the crash which hurt a third person in the car. The deer was not hurt.
The driver, 25-year-old, Jared Sabin, of Portland, was arrested for DUII. Sabin's blood-alcohol content was almost twice the legal limit. His passenger, 24-year-old Emmylea Williams, of Portland, was arrested for reckless endangering.
Passengers are urged to not interfere with driving a car because of how dangerous it can be.
