A Virginia Beach resident, John Paul Kotara, 27, was charged with driving under the influence after he hit a police car Friday night, reports The Virginian Pilot.
The incident occurred at 10:43 on the eastbound side of Interstate 264, about a half-mile west of the Lynnhaven exit, according to police spokeswoman Grazia Moyers. An officer was conducting a traffic stop when a car hit the front bumper, then collided into a guardrail and overturned. The driver of the vehicle and the officer, who was hit with flying debris, were treated for their injuries at a local hospital.
The suspect was charged with driving under the influence and failing to move over for a stationary emergency vehicle. He is currently being held at the Virginia Beach Correctional Center.
