Woman who drove into Egg Harbor house was drunk or high, cops say
EGG HARBOR — A township woman is facing more than just driving violations after police say they found her under the influence with her car inside a house Tuesday morning.
Police say 46-year-old Christie Adkins was heading east on Zion Road in a 2006 Pontiac about 8 a.m. when she struck the car in front of her, which caused Adkins to lose control of the wheel, veer off the road and drive into the home in the Bargaintown section of the township.
Adkins was arrested at Zion Road and Renee Drive. Police say she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
No injuries have been reported but the house did sustain some serious structural damage.
Adkins was issued a summons for driving under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs, reckless driving, careless driving and failure to maintain her lane. It's not known how fast she was going at the time of the crash.
She was later released with a court appearance date.
The Bargaintown Volunteer Fire Company and the Egg Harbor Township Building Inspector responded and assisted the police department at the scene of the crash.
