A 24-year-old Windsor woman faces several charges after allegedly driving drunk and crashing her car into another.

Police say that around 11pm Thursday night, they were called the area of Bruce near Elliott street in Downtown Windsor.

It was there that an 18-year-old male driving a Charger was driving north on Bruce Avenue, a one way street, approaching Elliott Street, when a Grand Am heading the wrong way hit him.

The female driver of the Grand Am was still behind the wheel of her car when police arrived and spoke with her.  While doing so, officers say that she had a hard time staying awake and officers could smell the odour of alcohol on her breath. When she got out of the car she could not stand.

She was arrested for impaired operation of a motor vehicle and was brought to the police headquarters for a breathalyzer test.

Police report that she registered a reading of 260 milligrams of alcohol in her system which is just over three times the legal limit.  The 24-year-old women from Windsor is facing a charge of impaired operation and exceeding the breathalyzer.

The 2008 Dodge Charger received $10,000 in damage and the 2002 Pontiac Grand received about $3,000 in damages. No one was injured.
