PENDLETON, Ind. -- A woman who crashed into a construction zone on I-69 Monday night tested at four times the legal alcohol limit.
Indiana State Police Sgt. Scott Jarvis was at the 217 Mile Marker of I-69 at about 10:30 p.m. when a vehicle, driven by Rachel Whited, 30, crashed into an arrow board and a "crash truck" dump truck.
Jarvis reached the driver and found her uninjured, but showing signs of impairment. Whited tested at .32% BAC.
She was arrested on preliminary charges of operating while intoxicated and endangerment.
"It is unfortunate that despite all the signage, police lights, and other lighting at a construction zone, that workers have to rely on a 'crash truck' to keep them safe; however the truck served its purpose last night and kept the workers from being injured or possibly killed," Jarvis said.
