An El Dorado County Sheriff’s deputy was rear-ended in an accident involving an alleged drunk driver early this morning in South Lake Tahoe, authorities said.

Deputy Rory McIntyre was treated at Barton Memorial Hospital in South Lake Tahoe and released after his marked patrol car was struck from behind at about 2:15 a.m.

“He’s a little banged up and recovering from his injuries,” said El Dorado County Sheriff’s Lt. Les Lovell.



The 26-year-old driver, Brooke Sullivan, was arrested by South Lake Tahoe Police. The woman has been charged with felony driving under the influence and causing bodily injury to another person. She was booked into the El Dorado County Jail and bail has been set at $25,000.

Both vehicles sustained major damage, Lovell said.



“The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office and our local law enforcement partners wish to remind everyone of the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and the harmful consequences to our community,” Lovell said in a press statement.
