WASHINGTON —

Dec. 2

2:10 a.m. - Dispatchers received a call about an accident on U.S. 50 West at S.W. 11th St. Officers arrived and found a green 2000 Ford passenger car on the south side of the road that had struck a utility pole, snapping it in half before coming to rest in the ditch. There was no one around, but a witness pulled up and told officers she took a female from the scene to Perdue turkey plant to wait for a ride.

The female was located and identified as Crystal J. Lester, 33, Vincennes. She said she was trying to set her GPS and ran off the road. She failed a certified chemical test for alcohol, registering .09 percent, and was arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated. Damage was estimated between $2,500 and $5,000.
