Shannon Fordyce, 45, 1739 Alexander Avenue, Salem, was driving a 1999 Green Subaru Legacy, when the vehicle left the road to the north and crashed into a small tree.

Washington County EMS also responded to the accident.

Officers noticed Fordyce was slurring her words and noting that she was trying to get home just up the road, pointing to the west. She had also asked those first arriving at the scene to help her back out so she could leave the scene.

According to Washington County Sheriff’s Deputy Paul Jenkins, she was charged with OWI per se, which was her first offense.
She’s being held at the Washington County Jail until she posts bond.
