Wife Talks To KHQ After Husband Gets Busted For DUI While Pulling Children On Sled Behind ATV

RELEASE FROM SPOKANE POLICE: A Spokane father was arrested after pulling children on a sled behind a 3-wheeler. The incident happened just before 8:00pm Wednesday. Spokane Police Officers responded to the 3600 block of E. Pratt to contact a citizen about an unrelated collision near that location. Their marked police vehicle was parked at the bottom of the very steep hill.

Officers reported hearing the ATV just seconds before they saw it crest the top of the hill at speeds estimated at 35 mph. 33-year-old Ramon D. Noggles was driving the 3-wheeler with an 8-year old boy and 8-year old girl sitting behind him. He was also towing a sled occupied by a 7-year old boy and a 10-year old girl. 

Officers saw the sled swing out as he drove down the hill and the sled slammed into the back of the parked patrol car. Both children in the sled were taken to the hospital for injuries related to the collision. 

The children on the back of the 3-wheeler were not injured.  Noggles was the father of both girls.  None of the children were wearing helmets or any other safety equipment.

Officers determined that Noggles was under the influence of alcohol. He was processed for DUI and the blood alcohol content results are pending analysis. Noggles was booked into jail for 2 felony counts of Vehicular Assault. Two additional misdemeanor charges of reckless endangerment and driving while license suspended/revoked are being forwarded to the prosecutors' office.

Pulling sleds or "ski-jogging" on public streets or parking lots result in serious injuries and death every year. Items towed behind motorized vehicles have no breaking power. Parked cars, curbs, trees, telephone poles, fire hydrants, and even hard snow and ice piles can kill you. It is illegal and dangerous so please don't do it.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Randall and Jill Kimberling didn’t think it would happen to their child.
