JAMESTOWN – A 30-year-old woman who flipped her vehicle during a rollover crash in Downtown Jamestown last week is now accused of driving while impaired by drugs.

A Toyota RAV4, operated by Jacquelyn Hayes, struck a parked pickup truck along West Third Street near just before the intersection with Clinton Street around 2 p.m. last Wednesday.

Following an investigation, Jamestown Police say a witness spotted Hayes veer off the roadway just before the collision.

Hayes had to be extracted from the vehicle by members of the Jamestown Fire Department. She was then taken to UPMC Chautauqua Hospital for medical treatment.

A drug recognition expert later alleged Hayes was impaired leading up to the crash.

She was issued traffic tickets and later released from police custody. No injuries, other than Hayes, were reported.
