TOWN OF LOCKPORT — An unidentified woman is facing felony charges after Niagara County Sheriff's deputies responded to a crash scene in front of the West Herr dealership on South Transit Road this morning.

According to NCSO, the driver had gone off the road, ripping down a street sign before going across to the other side of South Transit, jumping the West Herr entrance driveway and ripping out the divided curbs, then bouncing off a sign and crashing into a pole.

NCSO responded to the scene along with the Wendelville Fire Dept. and Rural Metro. When the deputy rolled up to the scene, he recognized the female driver as someone he had charged previously with DUI — having gotten into an accident in Tops parking long while under the influence of pills — and realized she was driving on a suspended license.

The EMS crews from Rural Metro and Wendelville checked her out and she signed off, refusing any care. She was charged with driving without a valid license and cuffed.

Sources say that a technicality prevented blood samples from being allowed to be taken, however she reportedly failed a field sobriety test on scene. Additionally, deputies found a large quantity of pills.

NOTE: Story updated at 5:04 p.m. with additional charges, details.
