(LAGRANGE CO.) - A LaPorte woman was arrested after crashing her vehicle early Sunday morning on the Indiana Toll Road in LaGrange County.

According to WANE TV, Indiana State Police say 22 year old Brittany Lockhart was getting on the Toll Road from the Howe Entrance and starting to head west at 12:44 AM. Troopers say Lockhart failed to negotiate a curve and drove her vehicle south across the westbound lanes, then went into the median and across the eastbound lanes..

Police say Lockhart made a U turn and then went across the eastbound lanes again and came to a stop in the median.

Troopers found Lockhart unconscious next to her automobile. Officers were able to help her regain consciousness, but noticed a strong odor of alcohol.

Police say they tested her blood alcohol level, which was three times the legal driving limit. They say she also used a controlled substance earlier in the day.

Lockhart was taken to Parkview LaGrange Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

She is being held in the LaGrange County Jail on charges of operating while intoxicated, operating with a Schedule I controlled substance in her body, and operating with an altered interim license plate.

The incident remains under investigation.
