ELYRIA, Ohio (WJW) -- A 34-year-old woman was arrested over the weekend after reportedly driving drunk, crashing her car and endangering her two children who were riding in the vehicle, the Elyria Police Department said.
On Sunday around 11 p.m., officers responding to a traffic collision at the corner of East Avenue and Fourth Street found a car crashed into a light pole, as well as the car's owner, Stacey Olah, and her two daughters, 8 and 4 years old, at the scene.
An empty alcoholic beverage can was also reportedly found inside the crashed vehicle. Police say Olah submitted to a field sobriety test, which she did not complete, and she was found to be “severely intoxicated.”
Officers said Olah then ran away, and allegedly punched an officer once he caught up with her.
According to the Lorain County Jail, Olah was arrested on the following charges: Assault on an officer, OVI, obstruction, resisting arrest, two counts of child endangerment and failure to control her vehicle. The children were taken via ambulance to University Hospitals Elyria, and were placed with Lorain County Protective Services.
