Susquehanna Woman Charged After Driving 600 Feet in Ditch
A Susquehanna, Pennsylvania woman is facing several charges in Broome County after Sheriff’s Deputies say they saw her drive off Route 79 in Windsor and into a ditch.
Authorities arrested 33-year-old Kristen Oropallo for the incident near Piper Hill Road at around 4:45 p.m. March 19. Deputies say after driving off the road, Oropallo continued traveling down the ditch for another 600 feet before stopping.
She told the officer she was not hurt and the Deputy said a strong smell of alcohol was detected on her breath.
Oropallo is accused of driving while intoxicated and while her license was suspended, moving from a lane unsafely and driving an unregistered motor vehicle.
She’s been ordered to appear in Town of Windsor Court at a later date.
