WATERBURY — A 61-year-old woman is facing multiple charges following a crash that took place in Waterbury back in March.

On March 9, authorities say they were notified of a crash that occurred on Reservoir Boat Launch at the end of Blush Hill Road.

Responding troopers say they found a Subaru Forester partially submerged in the water.

The driver, identified as Rebecca Olson, of Waterbury, was transported to Central Vermont Medical Center for cold water exposure.

At the completion of the investigation, police say that the crash took place at around 8:50 p.m.

Police say Dean Lovejoy, 39, of Morrisville, was parked on South Pinnacle Ridge Road because he was stuck on the muddy road at the time.

Olsen sideswiped Lovejoy’s vehicle causing damage and failed to stop and report the crash.

Following the investigation, police also say that Olson was under the influence of intoxicants at the time of operation when she was discovered at the Waterbury Reservoir Boat Launch.

Olson was served a citation and will face charges of DUI, leaving the scene of an accident, and negligent operation.
