Deputies arrested one man for driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII) after injuring one person following a crash in Aloha. A second person was also arrested for DUII after he drove through the crash scene. 

On March 10, 2018, at approximately 1:31 a.m., a Washington County Sheriff's Office deputy was driving southbound on Southwest 185th Avenue at SW Sandra Lane in Aloha. 

The deputy was patrolling for impaired drivers when he saw a silver Buick that was weaving in the travel lane. When the deputy activated his lights to stop the Buick, it drove to the left into oncoming traffic. There was a Toyota SUV driving northbound that attempted to avoid the impending crash but was struck head-on. 

Deputies investigating the crash contacted the driver of the Buick, 26-year-old Joshua Lucero. He was arrested for DUII, fourth degree assault and reckless driving. His passenger received non-life-threatening injuries in the crash. The driver of the Toyota received minor injuries. 

While investigating the crash, 72-year-old Joseph Bragg drove a 1993 Toyota pickup with no headlights on through the crash scene. Sheriff's deputies were able to stop the pickup and arrested Bragg for DUII.
