Driver arrested for DUI after being involved in three crashes

Arrested: Alison Lambie 30 YOA of Richland

Charges: DUI, 2 counts Hit & Run-attended, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, No Valid Operator’s License 1st degree

Synopsis:On 01/29/11, at about 0025 hours, RPD Units responded to a multi-car injury accident at GWW and Columbia Point. Witnesses advised the causative driver had fled the scene onto the Columbia Point Golf Course. Officers found the fleeing vehicle, in the rough, crashed into a tree on the 17th hole. The driver was discovered to be highly intoxicated and injured from the crash, presumably from striking the tree. In addition to the driver’s admissions, the officers discovered physical evidence placing her behind the wheel.

The investigation showed the driver was traveling south on GWW and rear-ended a vehicle stopped for a red light at GWW and Columbia Point. As the driver was attempting to flee, she failed to yield and struck a different vehicle head-on at the same intersection. The driver managed to drive the vehicle east on Columbia Point and then onto Bradley Blvd where she entered onto the Golf Course causing significant damage to the course, specifically to the tee-boxes on hole 17th. The incident finally ended after the driver struck a tree.

The driver was treated for her injuries and was booked into the Benton County Jail on the above listed charges.
