SEATTLE (AP) - The Washington State Patrol says two troopers who were injured Sunday night on Interstate 5 in north Seattle have been released from a hospital.

The two were injured in separate crashes related to a racing incident.

Trooper Chris Webb says one trooper was attempting to stop two racing cars about 9 p.m. when the trooper’s car went out of control and hit a utility pole.

About a half hour later, another trooper who had responded to the scene was hit by a car that plowed into the coned-off area and then left the scene. That driver was caught and arrested for investigation of drunken driving and hit-and-run.

The troopers were treated at a hospital for minor injuries.

The racing cars apparently got away.
