Patrol arrests man on vehicular assault warrant after DUI car accident

The Washington State Patrol announced they have arrested a Des Moines man they have been looking since he failed to show up in court to faces charges of vehicular assault after a November 2007 car accident.

The Patrol arrested Duane R. Stewart, age 50, after he drove off the road and hit a tree off of State Route 167 in Kent on June 1st. Stewart was driving with a suspended license and was under the influence of drugs at the time of this single-car accident. After he was treated for his injuries he was booked into King County Jail to face his outstanding warrants and felony charge.

Back on November 3, 2007, Stewart was driving westbound on Interstate 90 when he drove off the road and hit a tree. His 25-year-old passenger was seriously injured in that car accident. Because he was driving under the influence and recklessly at the time, he was charged with vehicular assault.
