LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville woman was arrested over the weekend after police say she was involved in a "serious" DUI crash and couldn't even remember it.
It happened Saturday night on Brownsboro Road, near the Summit Plaza, at approximately 10 p.m.
Police say 39-year-old Melissa Crutcher was driving a 2006 black Kia Sportage when she was involved in an injury accident with another vehicle containing one adult and four children. Police say the accident caused "serious injury" to at least one of the occupants of the second vehicle.
The extent of those injuries is not known.
Crutcher herself was injured and was taken to University Hospital. Police say she had glassy, eyes, slurred speech, was "very belligerent" to police and EMS and was completely unaware that she had been in a collision.
Police say they suspected she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, but after arriving at the hospital, she refused to be tested.
She allegedly told officers that she had only taken medications prescribed to her by her doctor, including one she couldn't remember the name of.
Police say they didn't buy her excuse, adding that she "intentionally" operated her vehicle while intoxicated on drugs, displaying "extreme indifference to the value of human life," and "wantonly" engaging in activity that caused "serious injury" to another.
She was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs and first degree assault.
