Kennewick Man arrested for DUI – Hit & Run Attended
Skamania County Sheriff Brown reports that on 4/11/16 at approximately 4:33 pm, the Washington State Patrol called our office to relay information regarding a possibly impaired driver, currently in a dispute with other motorists near milepost 22 on State Route 14. Deputies responded to the area and learned the black Nissan Titan pickup had left the scene, eastbound on SR 14.
Sgt. Tim Garrity reported he intercepted the vehicle near milepost 36 as the suspected impaired driver swerved into his lane. They were able to stop, and after investigation, arrest the driver for DUI and Hit & Run Attended.
The driver was identified as Jesus I. Mencias Cambero, 38, of Kennewick, Washington had a blood alcohol concentration over 3 times the legal limit, .265 & .280 respectively.
Deputies learned Cambero had been eastbound on State Route 14 from the Clark County area and had been stopped by the driver of a tractor trailer and another vehicle because of his erratic driving. While the other motorists attempted to get Cambero’s car keys, he was able to drive away. It was during this time he struck another vehicle, which was also eastbound, causing damage but no injury.
“We were fortunate to have located Mr. Cambero prior to any significant or serious injury collision. If it were not for the quick reporting and attempted intervention, this may have ended tragically, “ said Undersheriff Pat Bond.
