A vehicle was traveling westbound on Upham Place, N.W., on March 12 at 6:50 p.m. when its driver veered right and struck a parked vehicle, Vienna police said.
The vehicle then crossed over the center line, ran over the curb and struck a mailbox, officials said.
Its momentum not yet expended, the vehicle continued back over the center line, crossed the curb on the westbound side of the roadway and came to a stop in a yard on Colony Court, police said.
Upon officers’ interaction with the driver, they detected signs of impairment. Police arrested the 49-year-old Ashburn woman and transported her to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center, where authorities charged her with driving while intoxicated and destruction of property.
