Pennsylvania woman facing DUI charges after crash

Police in Pennsylvania believe that a 32-year-old Newtown woman was intoxicated when she was involved in a motor vehicle accident in Bucks County during the early morning hours of Aug. 6. The woman was formally charged with driving under the influence on Aug. 20 after toxicology test results allegedly confirmed that she was impaired at the time. Reports indicate that she is due to appear before a Newtown magistrate on Oct. 1.

The woman is said to have lost control of her vehicle while driving on Sequoia Drive in Newtown Grant at approximately 3:00 a.m. Officers from the Northampton Township Police Department say that her vehicle struck a road sign and three parked vehicles before coming to a stop. A local resident told reporters that a stationary vehicle was the only thing that prevented the woman's car from crashing into his children's playroom.

Police say that the woman seemed incoherent when they arrived at the scene. She was ordered to perform a series of field sobriety exercises once authorities detected the odor of alcohol on her breath. She was taken into custody after allegedly failing to complete the test. Court records are said to reveal that the woman was also charged with driving while under the influence of alcohol in 2010.

Cases involving drunk driving charges often hinge on the results of toxicology tests. While the equipment used to conduct breath and blood tests is highly sophisticated, it may provide misleading results if strict maintenance protocols are not followed or the samples used are mishandled. Experienced criminal defense attorneys may also challenge blood and breath tests when their clients suffer from medical conditions that could influence the results.
