A Windsor woman is facing several charges after an alleged hit and run in Chatham-Kent.

Police were called to Highway 40 and Electric Line around 6pm Tuesday after a Lincoln car that was stopped on Electric Line facing eastbound at the intersection of Electric Line and Highway 40, was struck on the front driver’s side by a southbound Dodge Caravan that was turning onto Electric Line from Highway 40.

The female driver of the Dodge reportedly stopped briefly, then continued westbound on Electric Line.

The 76-year-old male driver of the Lincoln was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Chatham-Kent OPP officers located the Dodge less than two hours later, travelling southbound on Bearline Road.

During conversation with the female driver of the Dodge, police say they determined that she had been consuming alcoholic beverages. Subsequent tests indicated that the driver was over the legal limit.

23-year-old Sabrina Jiminez, from Windsor, has been charged with driving with more than 80 mgs of alcohol in blood, fail to remain, and careless driving.
