San Andreas, CA — Icy roads caused a number of accidents Monday morning but one of them certainly wasn´t the Calaveras County mishap that involved 46 year old Priscilla Boynton of Mountain Ranch.
Boynton was westbound on Lower Michel Rd. east of Old Gulch Rd. at a stated speed of between 35-40mph. According to the CHP report, Boynton was unable to manuever through a slight curve due to her intoxicated state. She veered to the right, ran off the roadway and her 1989 Mercury collided with an oak tree.
Boynton suffered minor injuries as did her 27 year old passenger Joseph Wilson also of Mountain Ranch.
Boynton was arrested and charged with “driving under the influence.”
