FAIRFIELD, Conn. - A woman who lost control of her car and flipped it on Hulls Farm Road in Fairfield last month has been arrested on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and cocaine, police said.
According to the police report, the car went off the road at 400 Hulls Farm Road, damaging 74 feet of yard; went back onto the road, turned around and damaged another 122 feet of yard in the Aug. 12 accident.
The car then crossed the double yellow lines and damaged fences before flipping over and damaging more fence and a mailbox before coming to stop in the yard of 442 Hulls Farm Road, police said.
Maggie White, 21, told police she had been at a party in Westport. She said an oncoming car swerved into her lane and she lost control trying to avoid the other car, police said.
While looking in the car, officers found her driver's license with a white powdery substance on it, police said.
White was transported to St. Vincent's Hospital after the crash, police said. Police obtained a warrant for the reports of the samples taken at the hospital, which revealed that immediately after the crash she had alcohol and cocaine in her system, police said.
White turned herself in to police Monday morning and was released on $1,000 cash bond. She was given a court date of Oct. 8 at Bridgeport Superior Court.
