Drunk Wellesley ER Doctor Causes Wild Accident [VIDEO]
A Newton-Wellesley Hospital emergency room doctor pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to charges that she caused a three-car crash, sending one man to the hospital, while driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol on Friday morning in Wellesley, according to a spokesman for the Norfolk County District Attorney’s office and the Wellesley Police Department.
As you can see in the video, her car gets launched into the air.
On Friday morning at around 8:45 a.m., Howard was driving her Subaru Outback west through the Washington Street Whole Foods parking lot when she allegedly struck a Whole Foods delivery truck, according to Wellesley Police spokeswoman Lieutenant Marie Cleary. She then allegedly backed up and hit a fence, drove forward, and then drove backwards again, hitting the fence again.
She then allegedly accelerated and drove her car into a decorative granite post, said Cleary, snapping the post in half and sending the top half sailing across to the opposite side of State Street. The crash sent Howard’s car airborne, and she allegedly sideswiped a tree before hitting a Mercury Marquis at the traffic lights on State Street.
