Leah St. Hilaire, 23, was charged with driving under the influence (DUI) on Sunday after she crashed her vehicle into a building at Eastern River Self Storage in Dresden, Maine. St. Hilaire was driving a 2001 Volkswagen Passat east on Patterson Road near River Road when she failed to stop at the intersection and collided with the building, according to Lt. Rand Maker of the Lincoln County, Maine, Sheriff’s Office. Investigators believe the incident was alcohol-related.
St. Hilaire was alone in the car and sustained an injury to her knee. She declined medical attention at the scene, Maker told the source. The vehicle was damaged on its driver’s side. The storage building received damage to its siding and stonework, though the severity appears minor based on published photos.
In addition to DUI, St. Hilaire was charged with violating conditions of release. Both are misdemeanors. She was transported to Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset, Maine.
