Broome County Sheriff’s officials say shortly after 8:30 p.m. January 8 they responded to a report of a two-vehicle crash on Upper Front Street near the intersection with Old Front Street and found a Volkswagen Sport Utility Vehicle driven by 27-year-old Whittany Sanders had left the designated lane of travel and hit a 2015 Toyota sedan head-on, pushing the Toyota into the concrete barrier, trapping the occupant.

Deputies say Sanders attempted to leave the scene on foot and was detained by officers who say she exhibited signs of intoxication.

Sanders reportedly did poorly on field sobriety tests and was arrested under suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

The occupants of the Toyota were removed from the vehicle by fire department personnel and were taken to Wilson Memorial Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Sanders is charged with misdemeanor counts of driving while intoxicated and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident as well as ticketed for failure to keep right, moving from a lane unsafely and refusal to submit to a breath test.

She’s been ordered to appear in in court at a later date.
