State Police say a woman who was driving drunk and without a valid license rolled an SUV in a McDonough County corn field.

Troopers were sent to investigate a report of a woman walking in the road on 1050N near 1600E at about 9 p.m. Tuesday, October 28, 2013.  They couldn’t find the woman but they did find a 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer, which belongs to 42-year-old Julie VanOoteghem, overturned in a nearby corn field.

A short time later, a sheriff’s deputy stopped a different car and found VanOoteghem in the passenger’s seat.

State police arrested VanOoteghem and charged her with driving under the influence of alcohol, leaving the scene of a crash, illegal transportation of alcohol by a driver, operating a vehicle with expired registration, driving while suspended, no insurance and improper lane usage.

No other vehicles or people were involved in the crash.
