Woman Arrested for OUI Following Serious Car Accident on Cambridge St.

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

 

A woman was arrested for OUI following a car accident in which she hit and seriously injured a Worcester man in the area of Cambridge Street.

Carmen Chavez, 41 of Lynn was charged with Operating Under the Influence Resulting in Serious Injury, Failure to Yield to Pedestrian in the Roadway and Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle.

The Incident

On Sunday, August 13 at about 4:20 p.m., police were sent to 121 Cambridge St for a report of a pedestrian accident. Upon arrival officers located the victim, a 45-year-old Worcester man, lying in the roadway.

The victim was breathing, but appeared to have suffered serious injuries to his legs, arms, and head. Officers rendered medical aid until EMS arrived and transported to the victim to the hospital.

Traffic was diverted from Cambridge St while the Crash Reconstruction Unit investigated.

The initial assessment of the crash revealed that the victim was walking west down Cambridge St. He paused at the curb and attempted to cross north when he was struck by a 2017 Subaru Outback being operated by  Chavez. Chavez stopped momentarily and then proceeded into a parking lot. She exited her car and threw something under the car that were parked in the lot. The items were later identified as two 1 oz. nips of whiskey.

An officer spoke with Chavez, and immediately noticed that Chavez's eyes were bloodshot, glassy, and watery.

When she spoke the officer could detect a moderate smell of an alcoholic beverage coming from her. After initially denying it, Chavez eventually admitted that she had been drinking “a little.”

The officer administered field sobriety tests, which were failed by Chavez. She was placed under arrest for Operating Under the Influence Resulting in Serious Injury, Failure to Yield to Pedestrian in the Roadway and Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle. The incident was captured on the camera system of a local business. Ms. Chavez will be arraigned in Worcester District Court today.
