with DUI crash
GRAFTON — A Saxtons River teenager who Vermont State Police say was drunk when she crashed her car on Eastman Road is facing two criminal charges.
Miranda Sevene, 19, was charged with drunken driving and leaving the scene of an accident after police say she crashed her 1999 Ford Contour and then walked away from the vehicle leaving an injured passenger behind.
The crash, which occurred during a heavy rainstorm Thursday evening, injured both Sevene and 31-year-old Shannon Holmes, of Saxtons River, according to police, who say both women had minor injuries from the crash. Neither woman was taken to the hospital for medical treatment, according to police.
Sevene was issued a citation to appear in Brattleboro criminal court next month.
