WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) - A 21-year-old Clarkston woman is feeling the strong arm of the law after her arrest for drunk driving.
Andrea Gutierrez is free on bond after her arrest Sunday morning, August 18th, for drunk driving in Washington Township. She was arraigned in 42nd district court in Romeo Tuesday and released after meeting the requirements for the $10,000 cash or surety bond that had been set.
According to Gutierrez, the sun was very bright and shining into her eyes as she was driving east on Brookside Lane. She admits she hit something. But, thought it was garbage cans.
Much to her surprise, when she pulled over to see what it was, she discovered she had actually hit three people.
A 61-year-old man, his 59-year-old wife and a 77-year-old man were seriously injured and taken to the hospital.
Gutierrez blew a .12% in the breathalyzer test. Macomb County Sheriff's deputies impounded her 2013 Jeep Liberty . The passenger riding with her was uninjured.
This sort of thing has happened before to Andrea Gutierrez. She has a prior conviction for operating while intoxicated. But this time in addition to the OWI offense, she was cited for 2 counts of "operating while intoxicated-causing serious injury."
