The Democrat's 2014 Range Rover had to be towed from the scene after it struck both a tree and a parking sign, according to a police report.

Officers responded on that Friday night around 11:40 to Edgebrook Road west of Lansing Road.

Sicora-Ludwig was found with the vehicle in the grass, off the left side of the road, facing the wrong direction, the police report said, but was “unable” to tell officers what had happened.

She said she was driving home after having dinner.
