PALM COAST, Fla. – The Florida Highway Patrol says a 29-year-old woman was arrested on a DUI charge after side-swiping two patrol cars during a traffic stop.

The FHP report does not identify the woman who was arrested or the law enforcement agency whose cruisers were struck.

The report says there were three cars at the traffic stop on State Road 100 near Connecticut Avenue.

Two officers were standing outside their vehicles. The woman failed to move over for emergency vehicles and side-swiped two of the vehicles, according to the report. The report said the momentum forced one of the patrol cars to hit the third police vehicle.

One of the officers was transported to a hospital for injuries.
