Police say Sidote was exiting the highway on to the ramp too fast and bounced off guard rails on either side before the vehicle stopped. As a result, the vehicle became impaled into the guard rail.

She's charged with aggravated DWI, imprudent speed and possession of marijuana. Authorities said Sidote was uninjured and her BAC was over twice the legal limit.
