From Local Sources
JASPER — A motorist accused of a hit-and-run accident Tuesday morning was reportedly impaired at the time, according to police.
The Jasper Police Department was dispatched to the area of 30th and Mills streets at 9:46 a.m. after it was reported that a car struck a utility pole and left the scene.
The suspect, Wendy K. Rasche, 44, 890 Conrad Ave., and the 2006 Chevrolet Cruze were located in the Frankfurt Street area.
Because Rasche showed signs of impairment, police said, officers took her into custody and transported her to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center for chemical testing.
Police said Rasche tested positive for marijuana, methamphetamine and benzodiazepines in her system.
Authorities booked Rasche into the Dubois County Security Center at 12:57 p.m. on preliminary misdemeanor counts of operating while intoxicated and leaving the scene of a property damage accident.
