Racine police cites 21-year-old woman for slamming into Journal Times distributor

Posted under Car accidents

A 21-year-old Racine woman was cited for operating a vehicle while intoxicated after she crashed into a Journal Times distributor last Thursday, September 19 at around 3:30 a.m., Racine police said.

The woman got citations for drunk driving, hit-and-run, and inattentive driving, according to Sergeant Jessie Metoyer of the Racine Police Department.

According to the authorities, the woman was cruising near the corner of Wisconsin Avenue and Third Street just behind The Journal Times’ 212 Fourth Street building when she struck a 37-year-old contractor loading newspapers into his vehicle.

Metoyer said the woman did not stop after the crash and just sped away, but was successfully apprehended within minutes of the crash when a police officer approached her vehicle after hearing of its description.
