A 50-year-old Hamilton woman who swerved into oncoming traffic on Upper Sherman Avenue and hit a snow bank when she tried to turn into a driveway faces drunk-driving charges after blowing more than three times the legal booze limit in breath tests.
Const. Debbie McGreal-Dinning said police received a call about an erratic driver in the area of Upper Sherman and Franklin Road at about 5:45 p.m. on Feb 27 and caught up to the vehicle when it became lodged in the snow bank.
Released on a promise to appear in court, the woman is charged with impaired driving and driving with more than 80mg per 100ml of blood.
A 22-year-old Hamilton man faces the same charges after police stopped a suspected impaired driver near the corner of West 5th Street and South Bend Road at about 1:45 a.m. on Feb. 28.
He was arrested after showing signs of intoxication and failed breathalyzer tests at the police station.
