ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. - A woman from Sloatsburg was caught allegedly driving under the influence after crashing her car into an embankment on Tuesday afternoon.
Shortly after 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, members of the Ramapo Police Department were dispatched to a stretch of Hamilton Avenue in Sloatsburg, where there were reports of a vehicle that had crashed into an embankment.
Upon arrival, officers stated that there was a 2009 Nissan halfway off the road and on top of the curb. During the subsequent investigation into the crash, police determined that the driver, a 46-year-old woman from Sloatsburg, was allegedly under the influence of alcohol.
The woman - whose name was not disclosed by police - was processed at the Ramapo Police Department for driving while intoxicated and released on her own recognizance. She is due back in Sloatsburg Justice Court later this year to answer the charge.
