A Pendleton woman is under arrest following a motor vehicle accident investigation. 

Troopers say they found 45-year-old Dawn Rubeck's vehicle in a ditch on Campbell Boulevard in the Town of Pendleton during a routine patrol. 

Rubeck said she drove into the ditch to avoid a vehicle that appeared to be coming at her. Authorities say she had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage upon interview. 

While being processed, she consented to a breath test that recorded a .20 BAC. She is charged with aggravated DWI and moving from a lane unsafely. 

Rubeck will return to Town of Pendleton Court at a later date.
