TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A 26-year-old woman who drove her SUV through a police pedestrian plaza and down a flight of stairs claimed she was “following her GPS instructions,” according to the Portland Police Department.
Officers didn’t buy the woman’s claim stating they “felt it was her excessive blood alcohol level” that led to the unusual crash.
Police said the woman, who appeared to be in a Toyota Highlander SUV, drove through the police department garage, across a pedestrian plaza, and down the stairs.
“We are fortunate that she didn’t strike anyone and this ended with just a small amount of property damage,” the Portland Police Department said in a Facebook post. “Please don’t drink and drive.”
The woman was issued a summons for operating while under the influence.
