GLENDALE — Police accused a Daviess County woman of felony impaired driving after her car struck a scooter Saturday night in the Glendale area, ejecting and injuring the operator.
Cheyanne C. Stone, 23, Washington, was northbound on State Road 257 in a 2016 Nissan Altima when the 10:37 p.m. accident occurred just south of Daviess County Road 450S, according to the Daviess County Sheriff’s Department.
Police said Stone’s car struck the rear of a northbound 2015 Kymco scooter operated by Traver M. Grubbs, 22, Washington, then continued from the scene.
Grubbs, who was not wearing a helmet, was ejected from the scooter. He suffered a head injury and was transported for treatment, according to authorities. Additional information on his condition was not immediately available.
Law enforcement located Stone and stopped her car north of the U.S. 50 Bypass on State Road 257.
Deputies reported observing alcoholic beverages in plain view and, after further investigation, arrested her on a preliminary Level 6 felony count of operating while intoxicated with a blood alcohol content greater than .15 percent causing serious bodily injury, plus a preliminary misdemeanor count of leaving the scene of a personal injury accident.
Stone was lodged in the Daviess County Security Center.
Total damage was estimated between $2,500 and $5,000.
