Woman Accused of Nearly Hitting Deputy, Running From Police in Mason County

A Mason County sheriff’s deputy is OK after almost being hit by a drunk driver over the weekend.

It all started when deputies were investigating two hit and run crashes on U.S. 10 Sunday night.

That’s when Jessica Curtin drove through the scene, almost hitting the deputy.

Deputies eventually caught up to her and tried to pull her over.

They say Curtin then drove through a backyard and hit a house.

She is now charged with operating while intoxicated first degree, running from police and having open alcohol in the car.
