Kenai patrol car demolished during traffic stop

KENAI — Kenai police are seeking funds to replace a patrol car demolished during a traffic stop.

The Peninsula Clarion reported Officer Casey Hershberger on March 8 arrested a 27-year-old Soldotna man suspected of driving under the influence and drug misconduct.

Police say the suspect was in the back seat when a sedan driven by 19-year-old Anna Nisler rear-ended the patrol car.

Hershberger was standing at the open right rear door of the patrol car.

Nisler, Hershberger and the suspect were taken to Central Peninsula Hospital with what police say were non-life threatening injuries.

Nisler was issued a summons for overtaking and passing a parked emergency vehicle.

The Kenai City Council next week will consider appropriating money to pay for a new $28,000 patrol car.
