Crossing an intersection is a routine part of driving, but an intersection is also one of the most dangerous places on the road to be.
That’s something that Stephanie Gallwitz, 50, of Gillette, got a stark reminder of when she attempted to cross through Long Hill Road and Central Avenue in Long Hill Township on the night of May 4 and collided with another vehicle.
Accidents happen, certainly, but police arriving on the scene noticed that Gallwitz appeared to be intoxicated, which is a well known way to increase the risk of having an accident while driving.
Gallwitz was ultimately arrested and faces charges for DWI, reckless driving, careless driving, and refusal.
Thankfully, no one was hurt in the accident, and if she’s convicted, Gallwitz will likely be leaving the driving to others for at least a few months.
