Washington State man faces charges after injuring Anchorage police officer in wrong way crash www.privateofficer.com
Officer Randy Hughes sustained multiple fractures in the crash early Friday on the Glenn Highway in Eagle River, a suburb north of Anchorage.
Hughes was responding to reports that a sedan had been traveling the wrong way down the highway for miles, making no effort to avoid oncoming traffic, when his cruiser was hit by the car.
KTUU-TV reports that a judge signed an arrest warrant for the driver, 49-year-old Gregory Fulling of Marysville, Wash.
Hughes is still in a hospital in Anchorage, and Lt. Dave Park says his recovery is going to be long. Fulling was also hospitalized. He was to be arrested upon his release and charged with first- and second-degree felony assault, as well as driving under the influence.
