Vehicular Homicide & Assault Unit

The Vehicular Homicide & Assault Unit works closely with the Washington State Patrol and local law enforcement agencies to prosecute cases of vehicular homicide, vehicular assault, felony DUI, felony hit-and-run and eluding/fleeing from police officers.

Vehicle collisions happen every day throughout Pierce County. Vehicular Assault or Vehicular Homicide charges are pursued when impaired or reckless drivers cause substantial bodily harm or the death of another person. DUI drivers who have prior offenses, attempt to elude pursuing officers and/or flee the scene of an injury accident are the focus of our efforts.
