POWELL BUTTE, OR -- The Crook County Sheriff's Office says a Prineville Woman had a blood alcohol level more than three times the legal limit when she was involved in a crash, Friday afternoon. Deputies say a truck towing a livestock trailer was stopped on Powell Butte Highway, waiting to turn on to SW Cronin Road, when it was struck from behind by a Honda Pilot SUV.

 

Investigators determined 32-year-old Laura Brown was driving about 45 MPH when she slammed into the trailer, at about 3:30 p.m. Brown's airbags deployed but no injuries were reported in either vehicle. They learned Brown had been drinking; her blood alcohol level was later determined to be .30 "by weight." The legal limit in Oregon is .08.


Due to her level of intoxication and involvement in a crash, Brown was taken to the hospital for evaluation and cited for DUII, Reckless Driving and Reckless endangering. Powell Butte Highway was reduced to one late for about 30 minutes, Friday afternoon.
