After a 56-year-old woman crashed into a tree on Sunday, Jan. 10, she was taken to a hospital, where tests showed she had a blood-alcohol level of 0.33, police said. That amount is more than four times the legal limit for a driver. Darien police gave these additional details about the case:
Nicole Bernardo of Richmond Hill Road in New Canaan was driving when she lost control of her Subaru and hit a tree near the intersection of Ox Ridge Lane and Middlesex Road. The car’s front end was heavily damaged, and the airbag deployed.
