From Conway Police Department reports
Hit and run leads to DWI arrest
A Conway woman was charged with a DWI on Friday following a hit-and-run crash.
According to an incident report, Conway officers were called to the intersection of Caldwell and Faulkner streets around 12:50 a.m. Friday after a woman driving a black 2015 Kia Optima reportedly swerved off the road and struck a utility pole before fleeing the scene on foot.
Authorities soon located the suspect vehicle, which was apparently left abandoned in the roadway with damage to its front bumper and driver's side tire.
After learning the driver lived on Faulkner Street, police went to the woman's house to check on her, the report states.
The driver, Angela Renee Marshall, told police she crashed after "a white truck caused her to swerve into a utility pole." While talking with the woman, authorities believed the 36-year-old was intoxicated.
Initially, Marshall denied drinking when asked if she'd been drinking alcohol on the night in question. However, the report states, she soon admitted to having "two or three beers" upon being asked to take a Breathalyzer test.
According the report, the Conway woman showed to have a blood alcohol concentration of 0.17.
After taking the Breathalyzer test on scene, Marshall was taken to the police department to conduct field sobriety tests. Following the tests she was charged with a DWI and taken to the county jail.
Woman tells police she's headed to 'the vortex'
While waiting for a tow truck to pick up the abandoned vehicle from the hit-and-run crash at the intersection of Caldwell and Faulkner streets, authorities arrested a second woman who they believed was under the influence of a narcotic.
According to an incident report, officer Ivan Cortes was standing by as a tow truck collected the black 2015 Kia Optima that a 36-year-old woman reportedly crashed into a utility pole. A tow truck driver was attempting to back up when he noticed there was a woman sitting in a red 2014 Hyundai Accent behind him. After speaking with the woman, the tow truck driver believed the woman was impaired and notified Cortes.
As Cortes walked up to speak with the suspect driver, he noticed her eyes were watery and her speech was slurred, the report states.
When asked where she was going, 29-year-old Elizabeth Anne Kreher said she was headed to "the vortex."
The Missouri woman reportedly told police she had taken some CBD oil, "but stated that it was legal and [that she] only took the recommended dose."
The 29-year-old gave police to search her vehicle. Upon searching the woman's car, authorities found "CBD gummies" in the passenger side floorboard, the report states.
The woman participated in a few field sobriety tests but refused to do the Walk-and-Turn test, according to the report.
Kreher agreed to take a Breathalyzer test, which showed she had a blood alcohol concentration of 0. Despite not being under the influence of alcohol, the Missouri woman was arrested on suspicion of a DWI for drugs, according to the report.
