A Rochester woman faces multiple charges after allegedly causing a crash while driving intoxicated with a 12-year-old child in her car.
Jennifer Rose, 28, was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon on charges of second-degree driving while intoxicated, gross negligence, hit and run with injury, obstruction of the legal process and refusal to submit to a chemical test.
According to police reports, Rose was driving north on Broadway Avenue South in a Chevrolet Lumina when she ran a red light at 20th Street South. She collided with a Kia Sorento driven by a 44-year-old Rochester woman. The crash happened shortly after 5 p.m.
Rose then drove north from the crash scene and turned east on the next block, onto 19th Street Southeast. Police responding to the crash found Rose stopped at 19th Street Southeast and First Avenue Southeast. Rose performed poorly in field sobriety tests, according to police.
Rose was taken to the Olmsted County Adult Detention Center, where she refused to have blood drawn. Rose was being held there pending arraignment as of Thursday morning.
The 12-year-old child in the car with Rose at the time of the incident was not injured, according to police.
The other driver refused medical treatment at the scene but complained of head and chest pain.
