A Stoddard woman was arrested for her second operating with a controlled substance after hitting a Tomah Police Department patrol vehicle that was transporting an arrested person Monday.
The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said Briena Schultz, 36, made a left turn and failed to yield the right of way from the stop sign at the exit 28 eastbound ramp around 8:20 that night. Her car hit the patrol vehicle that was traveling west on State Hwy 16. The officer in the vehicle was taking an arrested person to the Monroe County Jail.
Schultz did have a passenger in the vehicle, but none were hurt in the accident. During the crash investigation, a Monroe County K9 unit found THC and drug paraphernalia. Schultz admitted to deputies that she smoked marijuana shortly before the crash. In addition to operating with a controlled substance, she was also cited for possession of THC, failure to yield right of way, and inattentive driving.
