A Tewksbury woman is facing multiple charges after allegedly causing an accident in Wilmington Tuesday morning in Wilmington and then fleeing the accident scene.
Wilmington Police allege Sara Brothers, 32, of 21 Hickory Lane, Tewksbury, was drunk behind the wheel when she struck another vehicle while driving on Salem Street at 1:11 a.m.
Salem Street was closed temporarily following the accident and Tewksbury Police provided assistance with the follow up.
According to Wilmington Police, when officers responded to the scene of the accident they found Brothers' vehicle abandoned at the scene. A short time later she was arrested and charged with OUI-liquor, leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, negligent operation of a motor vehicle and a marked lanes violation.
The mother of the driver of the other car involved in the crash contacted Tewksbury Patch and said her son was taken to an area hospital and is recovering from his injuries.
