Woman in accident to face charges

Friday, July 21, 2006

The allegedly intoxicated female suspect involved in a hit-and-run accident that led to a high-speed police pursuit and ended in a vehicle rollover in the area of the intersection of N. C.R. 1025 and C.R. 425 W. on July 15 has not been charged yet.

Because Debra Cannon, 48, of Brazil was taken to St. Vincent Clay Hospital for injuries sustained in the accident, she was not immediately arrested by the Brazil City Police Department.

Cannon could face preliminary charges of leaving a scene of a personal-injury accident, operating a vehicle while intoxicated and resisting law enforcement.

"When she is medically discharged, the prosecutor's office will pursue charges at that time," said Mark Loudermilk, police chief.

The accident took place in front of Riddell National Bank on National Avenue around 9:30 p.m. Saturday.

Driving a Honda CRV, Cannon rear-ended a vehicle driven by a juvenile. The juvenile was transported to St. Vincent Clay Hopsital, according to Loudermilk, but the extent of injuries are not available.
