A woman under the influence of several drugs crashed crashed into a light pole and electrical box at the corner of Durand Avenue and 90th Street on Monday.

According to the criminal complaint, when Sturtevant Police officers arrive on scene, the light pole had dislodged from the ground and was leaning against the vehicle. The electrical box was also pushed from its foundation and into the street.

The driver, Kimberly S. Jones, 46, was hysterical when police arrived. She talked about being too tired to work.

Rescue workers from the South Shore Fire Department arrived and took Jones to an ambulance for medical treatment. When the responding officer was looking in her vehicle for her insurance he found a syringe in the center console. Jones, wearing medical scrubs, said she forgets to return some items and keeps them. Jones was having trouble staying awake and was slurring her speech on the way to the hospital.

At the hospital, an officer “overheard” a doctor tell Jones that there was no alcohol in her system but there were prescription medications, cocaine and opiates, the complaint reads.

Jones is charged with her fourth offense of operating with restricted controlled substance in her blood.
