A Weymouth woman was recently arraigned in the Dorchester Division of the Boston Municipal Court on charges that she was drunk and driving into oncoming traffic on Morrissey Boulevard when she struck a state trooper. Since Jan. 1, 2010, forty five state troopers have been struck and injured by Massachusetts drivers. More than half of those accidents involved drivers impaired by alcohol.
The woman was arrested at the scene but posted $5,000 bail and was released from custody. Her license was suspended for 180 days because she allegedly refused a Breathalyzer test. As a condition of release, the court ordered her to remain alcohol free and submit to alcohol testing three times a week while her case is pending.
