AVON LAKE, OH — Police were contacted after a car with a deployed air bag was found empty near Lake and Miller roads in the early morning hours. The driver wasn’t in the car when officers got to the scene.
The crashed car was actually discovered by Sheffield Lake Police, who contacted their counterparts in Avon Lake at about 1:30 a.m. last Thursday. After Avon Lake officers arrived, and investigated, they called for a tow truck.
The driver of the car, a 47-year-old woman from Sheffield Lake, was found sitting beside a tree near the Miller Road Park Boat Launch, police said. She told police she was the only person in the car at the time of the accident. Officers determined she was intoxicated and arrested her.
The woman was taken to the Avon Lake Police Station for booking. She refused to take a breath test, police said.
The woman was charged with operating a vehicle impaired. She appeared in court on Tuesday, November 13 and pleaded not guilty to the charges. A pre-trial hearing was scheduled for mid-December, according to court records. https://patch.com/ohio/avon-oh/empty-car-airbag-deployed-found-avon-lake?utm_source=oath&utm_medium=rss&utm_term=police%20&%20fire&utm_campaign=recirc&utm_content=oath&yptr=yahoo
