Drunk driver arrested after slamming into a tree and a parked car

WILLOUGHBY, OH (WOIO) - On Sunday, Willoughby Police officers responded to Orchard Road for a report of person driving recklessly.

Apparently a vehicle was traveling northbound on Orchard Road in reverse.

The vehicle went off of the left side of the roadway at 890 Orchard, drove into a fence in the yard and continued to travel through the fence and into a tree in the yard at 870 Orchard.

The vehicle also then went through a few more front yards and struck another tree before hitting a parked car.

Cops say the suspect vehicle continued on another 1000 feet before becoming disabled.

The driver, a 45-year-old Willoughby woman, was arrested for OVI.

She was later charged with assault after kicking a female employee during a procedural pat-down search back at the police department.
