A woman has been arrested for suspicion of DWI after having been involved in a single car crash where she flipped her SUV.
According to police investigators, the accident happened at approximately 10:10 p.m. Thursday on New road near Old Orchard in Lewes.
Investigators say that Jean M. Steiner, 42, was driving her Chevy Suburban when her vehicle veered off the south side of the roadway. Steiner overcompensated, causing the vehicle to overturn. The SUV rolled, coming to a stop in the middle of the road on its roof.
Police say that Steiner was transported by EMS to Beebe Medical Center and was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Delaware State Police have now charged Steiner with her 4th DUI Offense. In addition, she has also been charged with Failure to Have Insurance in Possession, Failure to Have Registration in Possession and Failure to Remain in a Single Lane.
Steiner was arraigned and was being held at the Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution in lieu of $6,003.00 cash bond.
