Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville woman involved in a crash Wednesday afternoon was arrested after police say they determined she was driving while impaired.

According to the arrest report, 27-year-old Jessica Baker was involved in a collision with another car around around 4 p.m. at the intersection of Poplar Level Road and Indian Trail. No injuries were reported, but an officer interviewing Baker noticed she "had slurred speech and was having a hard time keeping her eyes open," according to the arrest report.

Police say Baker admitted "to taking some medication for anxiety."

Baker was unable to perform field sobriety tests and was arrested. Police say Baker's 4-year-old child was in the back seat of the car.

Baker is charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs and endangering the welfare of a minor. She was being held at Metro Corrections on a $7,500 cash bond.
