WEST HOLLYWOOD—According to officials at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s West Hollywood Station, two West Hollywood sheriff’s deputies were in their cruiser verifying the ID of a jaywalker when it was rear-ended by a suspected DUI driver around 1:45 a.m.

The incident occurred at Santa Monica Boulevard and Orange Drive, just over a block outside West Hollywood on Monday, May 6.

The suspected DUI driver was Nadezhda Protsenko, 27, and she was arrested at the scene after a preliminary screening revealed that her blood alcohol content was nearly triple the legal limit.

Protsenko was transferred to a hospital for treatment and was later cited and released with a court date.

While the vehicles were moderately damaged in the accident, no one was hurt.
