A Columbus woman is being accused of driving under the influence after crashing into the side of a National Road restaurant.

Columbus police report that a vehicle drove into the side of the National Road Dairy Queen at about 10:25 a.m. yesterday morning. The driver, 37 year old Jessi E. Baldwin told officers that she swerved to avoid a vehicle driving at her. But officers noticed that she seemed to be impaired.

After a blood test at Columbus Regional Hospital, a search of her purse revealed marijuana and drug paraphernalia. She was arrested on preliminary charges of driving while under the influence and possession of the drug items.
