A woman suspected of drunken driving struck a pedestrian, a dog and several parked cars, then tried to flee Monday evening, according to Frederick police.
Yvonne Aurora Rivadeneyra, 52, was trying to break into her own home in the 100 block of Stonegate Drive when police caught up with her at about 7:30 p.m., after responding to the hit-and-run crash nearby, according to a department news release.
Witnesses told police that Rivadeneyra jumped out of her car and ran after striking several parked cars, a pedestrian and a dog shortly before her arrest.
Emergency medical providers treated the pedestrian and the dog while officers secured Rivadeneyra’s car, which was left running at the crash site, the release states. The pedestrian was treated for minor injuries at Frederick Memorial Hospital, and the dog was taken to a veterinarian.
Rivadeneyra was also taken to the hospital for a checkup and was charged with second-degree assault, interfering with arrest and disorderly conduct after her release, according to police. She also faces several traffic offenses, including fleeing the scene of a crash and driving under the influence of alcohol.
Rivadeneyra was released from the Frederick County Adult Detention Center after 10 percent of her $10,000 bail was posted early Tuesday, according to online court records.
