Police issue drunk driving citation to woman found in car on RR track

NEW HAVEN — Vermont State Police cited Mary Mendoza, 33, of Weybridge for driving under the influence (first offense) on Tuesday, May 30, after she allegedly drove off Route 7 and onto the train tracks at the junction of Route 17 in New Haven at around 11 p.m.
Police allege Mendoza had driven an estimated 50 feet along the rail line before her vehicle got stuck, according to a press release issued by VSP Capt. Michael Manley and Sgt. Aaron McNeil.
Police said they located Mendoza and “detected signs of impairment.” Police said they screened Mendoza and then took her into custody for “suspected DUI.”
The press release did not include details of a possible roadside breathalyzer test. Vermont Department of Public Service Commissioner Thomas Anderson recently ordered state police to stop including preliminary breath test results with their DUI press releases.
Police released Mendoza after processing and she is scheduled to be arraigned in Addison Superior Court, criminal division, on the DUI charge on June 19.
