A 24-year-old motorist involved in a single-car accident on Stratfield Road in June was arrested Tuesday on a warrant that charged her with driving under the influence.
April E. Molina, of Brewster Street, Bridgeport, was released after posting a court-set $5,000 bond and was scheduled to appear Jaly 25 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
Molina was driving north on Stratfield Road about 2:34 a.m. June 14 when she lost control of her car and struck a United Illuminating pole, ripping a front tire and strut from her car. Molina continued driving north and her car tipped onto its driver's side tire and spun around before landing back on its tires, police said.
Molina complained of pain and was taken by AMR Ambulance Co. to St. Vincent's Medical Center in Bridgeport, police said. Officers, who were unable to perform field sobriety tests at the scene, executed a search warrant at the hospital for samples of Molina's blood and applied for an arrest warrant based on the results, police said.
