Juvy DUI

Posted on 31st August 2010 at 07:57

The Sheriff’s Office says that a 17 year-old girl is facing charges of DUI and hit-and-run after a crash that happened early this morning in the area of 42nd and Pacific Way. Deputies and aid crews responded to that area at about 1:20 am, when it was first reported that an SUV had crashed into a building. Deputies arrived and found that the SUV had actually crashed into an embankment, not a building. The 17 year-old female driver suffered some minor injuries in the collision, and was taken to St. John Medical Center, where she was treated and released. Deputies say that they’re not sure exactly where the girl came from, but a further investigation shows that she’d hit a mailbox on 34th Avenue and another nearby hedge prior to crashing at 42nd Avenue. The Ford Explorer that the girl was driving got totalled.
