HUNTINGBURG — An investigation into a Monday night leaving-the-scene accident resulted in the arrest of a woman accused of impaired driving.
The Huntingburg Police Department had been notified about a possibly impaired driver just before a 9:36 p.m. report of a vehicle being struck in the 200 block of Van Buren Street.
Authorities say a witness who spoke with the suspect reported the woman said to not call police before leaving the scene in a 1996 Nissan Altima.
Police say the license plate number that was obtained came back to Kitty L. Bieker, 60, 410 E. Fourth Ave. Authorities located the Altima believed to have been involved in the accident behind her residence in a field. Police said the car appeared to be stuck.
Huntingburg police say Bieker, who was located at her residence, admitted to being the driver in the crash. Officers who detected the odor of alcohol reported that Bieker failed field sobriety testing.
A blood draw conducted at Memorial Hospital allegedly placed Bieker’s blood alcohol content at .10 percent.
Authorities booked Bieker into the Dubois County Security Center at 1:15 a.m. today on preliminary misdemeanor counts of operating while intoxicated and leaving the scene of a property damage accident.
