Kennebec County, Maine – May 22, 2012

A sheriff’s deputy is injured after being dragged several feet by a suspect’s vehicle on Manchester Road Tuesday afternoon.

According to the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office, 33-year-old Angie May Soucy was traveling in her 1996 Nissan Maxima around 2:15 p.m. when she was stopped by Sheriff Deputy Nathan McNally for suspected traffic violations. After giving false information, Ms. Soucy drove off with Deputy McNally’s arm caught in her driver’s side window.

Deputy McNally was dragged more than 30 feet before the vehicle crashed into a ditch. Deputy McNally sustained minor injuries to his arm.

Ms. Soucy faces multiple charges including reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon and criminal mischief. She also has several outstanding warrants from three different counties.

The National Motor Vehicle Crash Causation Study conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that driver error was the primary cause in 90 percent of major traffic crashes.
