Alleged Drunk Driver Strikes Car in Driveway
Northborough woman hits parked car in Westborough on Wednesday night.
An allegedly drunk driver drove a pick-up truck across a Mill Road lawn and struck a parked car Wednesday night, Westborough Police say.
Police arrested Donna Poulin, 46, of 85 Howard St., Northborough and charged her with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, speeding and failure to keep within marked lanes, Westborough Police Chief Alan Gordon said in a press release this morning.
"The investigation by Officer Chris Atchue revealed that Poulin’s vehicle left the
roadway, traveled across the lawn at 30 Mill Rd. and struck a 97 Nissan which was parked in the driveway of this residence. Poulin then re-entered Mill Road, coming to rest near 28 Mill Road," Gordon wrote.
Poulin was not injured in the incident, which happened around 7:03 p.m. Wednesday, Gordon wrote. Westborough Fire Department paramedics examined her at the scene, but she refused treatment.
The 2006 Chevrolet pick-up truck had extensive damage, Gordon wrote.
Poulin was bailed for arraignment today in Westborough District Court, Gordon wrote.
