Mount Vernon, Washington– A suspected drunk driver fled the scene of a crash on Laventure road just after 1:15 am this morning.

Multiple Callers reported a crash on Laventure Road to Skagit 9-1-1 involving several vehicles with possibly impaired drivers.

Mount Vernon Officers responded and called in Washington State Patrol Troopers to process the suspected Intoxicated Drivers.

One of the Drivers took off in a gray 1993 Mercedes that had been damaged in the crash and the driver  led a Washington State Patrol Trooper on a short chase before the Trooper lost sight of the vehicle.

Within minutes Mount Vernon Officers located the suspect and took him into custody where he was turned back over to the Washington State Patrol Trooper with additional Charges being added.
