SUV ENDS UP PARTIALLY SUSPENDED IN AIR FOLLOWING NL CRASH
New London — An accident involving three vehicles at the intersection of Jefferson Avenue and Boulder Drive left one car partly suspended in midair by a guidewire attached to a telephone pole Saturday night.
Upon arrival at the scene, police said the front of the black sport utility vehicle was suspended about 10 feet in the air while the back tires were on the ground.
Its driver, Christina MacDonald, 41, of 33 Boulder Drive, was sitting in the front seat uninjured, police said. Once out of the vehicle, police charged MacDonald with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and failure to drive right. The cause of the accident was still not immediately clear Sunday evening. No injuries were reported.
