Driving Drunk? Don’t Hit a Police Car -Bend Oregon Woman in Serious Trouble

Bend Oregon woman slams into police car while driving drunk
(Oregon State Patrol)

Bend, OR Police apprehended a woman who smashed into the back of a police car while driving drunk.Shortly before midnight Tuesday,  Bend Police Officer Justin Lovrien was wrapping up a traffic stop on the Bend Parkway  he was plowed into from behind!  35 year old Tina Rae Taylor of Bend was obviously having trouble keeping her Toyota on the road, and slammed into the officer’s patrol car at a speed fast enough to cause her airbag to deploy.

Officer Lovrien sustained minor injuries, was treated at a nearby hospital and released.   His car sustained significant damage but was drivable from the scene.  The same could NOT be said for Taylor’s Toyota, judging from the pictures.  Police did not release her blood alcohol level, but she was cited for DUI, 3rd degree assault, and reckless driving.

Authorities remind drivers all over the Pacific Northwest to NOT drink and drive this Super Bowl Weekend, because extra patrols will be everywhere!  From the looks of her booking photo, Taylor still looks a little happy drunk!
