After an investigation at the scene, the driver, 32-year-old Sadie Ann Nelson of Ireton was charged with Possession of a controlled substance – marijuana, a Class D Felony; Possession of drug paraphernalia, a Simple misdemeanor; and OWI/Drugged, a Serious misdemeanor.
Nelson was taken to the Plymouth County Jail and held to see a judge. The Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by the Hinton Police Department.
