A 50-year-old New Jersey woman was charged for DWI and other traffic violations after she was involved in a one-car crash on Nov. 24. The alleged drunk driving incident began in Flemington at around 9 p.m. when police received a report about a driver who had collided with a stop sign. When a police officer arrived at the scene, he discovered a fallen stop sign and pieces of a broken headlight and tire.
Minutes after the stop sign collision, the accused woman was pulled over along Route 31 by a Raritan Township patrolman. The woman had apparently been driving her SUV with a flat front tire before she was stopped. After she was transported to police headquarters, the woman's blood alcohol level was found to be over the legal limit, and she received a DWI charge.
