Driver accused of causing crash at Grape and Cleveland roads charged with OWI

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -- The driver who was allegedly fleeing from police and caused a crash at Grape and Cleveland roads Tuesday has been charged, according to court records.

Kristen Sue Kerr, 29, has been charged with resisting law enforcement, operating a vehicle while intoxicated and unlawful possession of a syringe.

On Tuesday, Mishawaka Police were attempting to conduct a traffic stop on a Dodge Stratus driven by Kerr, because she was wanted on a felony warrant, reports said.

Officers attempted to conduct the traffic stop as she left a hotel, but she did not pull over.

As Kerr continued north on Grape Road, her vehicle, collided with a Toyota, which then struck a Mazda, reports said.

The drivers of the Toyota and Mazda suffered minor injuries and refused treatment.

Kerr was taken to the hospital and released and then taken to the St. Joseph County Jail.

Her bail hearing is scheduled for Friday.
