Woman Booked for DUI After Hit-and-Run with Motorcycle in Lynnwood

According to the Seattle Times, a Snohomish County judge found probable cause on Friday to hold Pamela Masterman-Stearns of Auburn on investigation of DUI, injury hit-and-run, and vehicular assault after she allegedly drove drunk and hit a motorcyclist with her car in Lynnwood, then fled the scene in her damaged car.

She was booked into the Snohomish County Jail around 4:30 a.m. Friday. She made her first court appearance Friday afternoon, and a judge set bail at $50,000.

According to the statement of probably cause, Masterman-Stearns was arrested twice before for DUI. Just after 10 p.m. Thursday, she allegedly struck and injured a motorcyclist with her car. The injured man was taken to Harborview Medical Center. One witness told police that Masterman-Stearns got out of her vehicle, walked back to where the motorcyclist was screaming in pain as he lay in the roadway, and then got back into her car and took off. Police state that she “showed severe signs of impairment” and a breathalyzer test performed in the field showed an initial blood-alcohol content of 0.189, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08.
