Bismarck Woman Accused of Hit-And-Run While Driving Under the Influence With Three Children in Car
A Bismarck woman was recently arrested and accused of hit-and-rush crashes, all while driving under the influence, with three children in the car.
According to The Bismarck Tribune, 22-year old Kayla McKenzie was arrested Tuesday night after police found her passed out at the wheel of her vehicle.
Witnesses say they spotted McKenzie around 6pm Tuessday behind the wheel of her vehicle as it rear-ended another vehicle at the intersection of 4th and Main. At the time, there were three children in the vehicle: two in the backseat and one on McKenzie's lap.
From there, McKenzie continued driving and ended up at a dead end alley between N. 11th and 12th streets. She struck a chain link fence, which hit the side of a garage, and then backed into another fence.
McKenzie then pulled out of the dead end alley and back onto Main, where she struck another truck, which rolled into another parked vehicle.
In total, McKenzie caused close to $10,000 in damage, according to The Bismarck Tribune.
When she was arrested, McKenzie's blood alcohol level was 0.252, which is more than three times the legal limit in North Dakota.
McKenzie was required to post $10,000 and will next have a preliminary hearing.
