Paducah woman accused of DUI, hitting at least 4 parked cars

MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

A 60-year-old Paducah woman is facing DUI-related charges after deputies say she hit several parked cars on Tuesday evening, Dec. 30.

Eula A. Williams was charged with first degree operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol/drugs (aggravated circumstances), operating a vehicle on expired operators license, no registration plates, no registration receipt, first degree failure of owner to maintain liability insurance, failure to notify address change to the Department of Transportation, four counts of first degree criminal mischief and first degree prescription controlled substance not in proper container.

According to the McCracken County Sheriff's Department, around 6:11 p.m. on Tuesday, deputies were dispatched to the area of South 5th Street and Caldwell Street for a report of a suspected intoxicated driver.

When they arrived, deputies say they found Williams still seated behind the wheel of her 2012 Dodge Avenger. They say the car was still running and was at the intersection of South 5th and Caldwell Streets.

Williams was allegedly under the influence of alcohol and possibly prescription medication.

Deputies say they learned she had hit no less than four parked vehicles along South 5th Street after hitting at least two curbs, thus causing her to completely lose the right, front tire of her car.

After her arrest and a search of her car, deputies say they found prescription medications not in the proper container in her purse.

Deputies say the investigation is ongoing and more charges are possible.
