Dianna Holloway, 26, has been charged with a DUI following an incident Monday night, where she hit a police vehicle, then another car, leaving a police officer and two young children in the hospital.

Fairfax County Police Spokesperson Officer Don Gotthardt said that prior to the crash, both Virginia State Police and Fairfax County Police were on the lookout for a suspected drunk driver traveling eastbound on Route 66.

A Fairfax County Police Officer was on I-66 looking for the suspected drunk driver and saw a separate vehicle commit a traffic violation. The officer's cruiser was rear ended by the Chevrolet driven by Holloway, while he was trying to pull the other vehicle over. After being rear ended, the officer's cruiser struck the car—a Toyota—that was being pulled over.

The driver of the Toyota sustained non-life threatening injuries and the passenger of the Toyota was uninjured.

The officer, who was in his cruiser when the accident happened, sustained non-life threatening injuries.

Holloway had two male children in her vehicle—a 6 year old and a one year old that both sustained non-life threatening injuries.

Court records show Holloway has a history of guilty pleas and failures to appear in court on traffic violations.

In Fairfax County, authorities cited Holloway twice for driving on a revoked license, twice for defective equipment and she entered a guilty plea for not properly restraining a child in a vehicle under the age of seven.

In Stafford County, she received a citation for failure to maintain control of her vehicle and in Fauquier County, she entered a guilty plea for reckless driving.
