Driver Hits Guardrail at Power Plant, Ditches Car in Caledonia
Oak Creek officers arrested a Greenfield woman at her home after she initially lied about whether she drove the vehicle, according to a police report.
Oak Creek police arrested a 49-year-old Greenfield woman who struck a guardrail at the We Energies power plant and later abandoned her vehicle in Caledonia, according to police reports.
Officers were called to the We Energies property on Elm Road about 1:50 a.m. Feb. 14 after an employee reported a driver who seemed intoxicated. After the employee told the woman to park her vehicle, the woman instead backed into a guardrail and headed southbound on Chicago Road, according to a police report.
Caledonia police found her vehicle unoccupied and stuck in a snowbank near a cul-de-sac on Seven Mile Road. The car still had the keys in the ignition, police said.
An Oak Creek police sergeant called the listed owner of the vehicle, who said she was at home in Greenfield. In an interview at her residence, the woman initially told police she had been home since 10 p.m. However, she eventually admitted she drove the vehicle.
Police arrested her for failing to notify police of an accident and obstructing police.
