Afternoon Crash Leads to OWI Arrest

By  | 

Eau Claire County sheriff's deputies say a 26-year-old Eau Claire woman was arrested Thursday afternoon after driving drunk and flipping her car.

Deputy Marc Christopher says the woman was driving west on Tower Drive near 50th Avenue around two o'clock.

He says she came around a curve too fast, crossed the center line, hit the opposite embankment and rolled her car.

Christopher says he could smell alcohol on the woman and she was arrested for operating while intoxicated.

He says she was the only person in the car and was not hurt in the crash.
