A Nashville woman is facing drunk driving and vehicular assault charges after Springfield Police say she was involved in a single-vehicle crash that injured two children on Memorial Boulevard near Experiment Station Road just after 10:15 p.m. on Monday.
Dorreen Moore, 35, was driving into Springfield on Memorial Boulevard when the crash occurred, according to Springfield Police Chief David Thompson.
“She told investigators that she hit something on the road, which caused her to swerve off the road and hit the telephone pole,” Thompson said Tuesday. “The officers noted that they believed there was the presence of alcohol at the scene, and they took her into custody on suspicion of DUI.”
The officers described Moore in their report from the scene as “emotional, depressed and angry.”
Two children, ages 5 and 10, were injured in the wreck and were taken to a local hospital for treatment, Thompson said.
There was no immediate word on their condition Tuesday.
The children share Moore’s Nashville address, the chief said.
Moore was being held at the Robertson County Jail on $45,000 bond, as of Tuesday. She faces the single DUI charge in addition to two counts of vehicular assault.
