At about 12 p.m., a Burlington Police officer contacted a 29-year-old woman driving a pickup truck. The woman had warrants for her arrest.
When the officer attempted to take the woman into custody, she drove away in her truck, dragging the officer on the ground behind the car for about 30 feet.
More police responded and attempted to help the officer. They attempted to stop the truck, which then continued to accelerate, then ran a red light and hit another car that had two passengers inside.
As officers went to give aid to those passengers, the suspect fled in the truck.
One passenger, a 78-year-old woman, and the 31-year-old officer who was dragged by the truck were transported to Skagit Valley Hospital.
