Chillicothe woman arrested after crash on dead-end road; Charged with DWI

Accident with DUI/DWI

A Chillicothe resident was hurt when the car she was driving hit a large dirt berm blocking the end of a dead end road.

31-year-old Marisa Meyers of Chillicothe was taken to Hedrick Medical Center in Chillicothe with moderate injuries.

The accident happened early Sunday one mile northwest of Chillicothe on old Highway 190 as Myers did not obey a traffic sign warning of the dead end road. The westbound car traveled into the dirt berm and came to rest on its wheels in the middle of the dirt pile demolishing the car.

The patrol accused Ms. Myers of driving while intoxicated, careless and imprudent driving resulting in an accident, and not using a seatbelt.
