A local woman said she had not been drinking when she crashed her Jeep Grand Cherokee into a guardrail Saturday morning.
“I was not driving around smashed with my kids in the car,” said Jessica Weismore, who has been charged with driving under the influence. “It was 9:30 a.m. and I was on my way to work. I had taken one pain pill that was prescribed to me for a tooth that was cut out of my mouth. I was not inebriated. If I didn’t appear just right for the police officer it was because my face had just slammed into the steering wheel.”
The wreck happened on West Main Street near D.C. Tire. Weismore said she was distracted by her three children in the vehicle and that is what caused her SUV to scrape the side of the guardrail and then smash into it.
“I was not drinking,” said Weismore. “I am fine and my children are fine. The accident was my fault, but I was not so messed up I couldn’t drive. All I do is work and take care of my children. I am not a reckless mother.”
Weismore’s charges include driving under the influence and driving on a suspended license.
