MILTON, Wash. (AP) - A Milton police officer suffered head and leg injuries after a suspected drunk driver slammed head-on into his patrol car at 50 mph.

Seattlepi.com reports (https://bit.ly/1K7gON8 ) that the crash happened early Tuesday after the officer spotted a car stopped on state Route 99.

The officer walked up and knocked on the window and the car started moving forward. When it took off, the officer jumped into his patrol car and gave chase.

The suspect made a U-turn and drove straight into the officer’s car.

The force of the crash shoved the patrol car’s engine into the passenger compartment.

The officer was taken to the hospital for treatment and then released.

There was no immediate word on the condition of the suspected drunken driver.
