MONROE, CT — A Shelton woman was charged with DUI after losing control of her silver Saturn L200 on Old Fish House Road and going down an embankment, before her vehicle ended up on its roof Tuesday evening.
Cory Mejnartowicz, 40, of Cherokee Trail, suffered minor injuries and Monroe Volunteer Emergency Medical Service personnel took her to Bridgeport Hospital for treatment, police said.
Mejnartowicz was also charged with driving too fast for conditions and released on $5,000 bond for a future court date.
On Tuesday, police officers were dispatched to the area of 90 Old Fish House Road, in Webb Mountain Park, around 6:46 p.m. to respond to the report of a motor vehicle accident and found the Saturn down the embankment.
Monroe and Stevenson firefighters also responded to the scene.
“Crews were able to get the driver out of the vehicle quickly, and with the help of Monroe, we were able to get the patient up the embankment and into the care of EMS,” the Stevenson Volunteer Fire Co. said in a post on the Monroe Volunteer Fire Department Facebook page.
In addition to the fire trucks that responded, firefighters brought an ATV to handle the park terrain.
