SAN FERNANDO, Trinidad & Tobago - A 52-year-old primary school teacher who crashed her vehicle into a ditch in San Fernando on Monday afternoon, has been charged with drunk driving.

A 52-year-old primary school teacher who crashed her vehicle into a ditch in San Fernando on Monday afternoon, has been charged with drunk driving.

The mother of two told police she was having personal problems. At around 1.50p.m., officers of the Ste. Madeleine police responded to crash at Ridgewood Gardens Golconda.

They found the woman, the lone occupant, who had been removed from the vehicle by residents and passing motorists.

A bottle of rum was found in the vehicle and the woman smelled of alcohol. Police said she could barely walk. She had to be assisted into the police vehicle and taken to Ste Madeleine police station where officers tried to administer the breathalyser test.

Police said she was sucking on the straw instead of blowing into the receptacle. The woman has been charged and will appear in court on Tuesday.

She was charged by Constable Sujeet Ramcharan.
