After allegedly rear-ending another vehicle in late March, a woman from Maryland has been charged with DUI. The 47-year-old driver is said to be the cause of the accident that occurred on Library Avenue in Newark.
In the Newark Police’s statement, their spokesman Lt. Fred Nelson stated that police arrived on the scene of the crash around 10:27 p.m. on March 22 near the area of Library Avenue and East Main Street.
The statement elaborated, saying that a 22-year-old driver in a 2008 Honda CRV was rear-ended by the alleged DUI offender’s 2007 GMC Yukon. The Honda had been stopped at a red light when it was hit from behind by the other vehicle.
While investigating the scene, it was found that the offender had recently consumed alcohol, leading to her arrest for driving under the influence, as well as following too closely. She was released shortly after, but her vehicle was towed from the scene of the crash.
No serious injuries were reported.
