Woman Arrested for Driving Under the Influence of Prescription Drugs

The Grass Valley Police say a woman who hit eleven cars in a wild driving spree was likely under the influence of medication prescribed by her doctor. Sergeant Steve Johnson says a woman driving from Freeman Lane to Main Street Saturday morning was literally bouncing off cars as she drove. The woman struck a total of eleven cars before she was pulled over. The Sergeant says it is likely the woman had taken medication prescribed by a doctor and should not have been behind the wheel.

“In this day and age we typically think of DUI in terms of alcohol consumption. What we’re seeing is there is a tremendous increase and people who were driving under the influence and actually impaired to an illegal level on prescription medication.”

The 31 year old woman was found next to her smashed up Camaro on Main Street, wondering what happened. She was taken into custody for suspicion of driving under the influence and hit and run. The Sergeant said some medications make drivers hazardous on the road.
