READING, PA – A 35-year-old woman was jailed on suspicion of DUI after she injured another motorist during a high-speed police chase early last week. On Tuesday, she was booked into Berks County Prison.
According to an article from the Reading Eagle, police were called to a gas station on Penn Avenue in Wernersville after the suspect, Danielle Nenna, began shouting that she was possessed. Nenna then fled in her vehicle, speeding down Penn Avenue to avoid capture. Police pursued her as she led them down country roads, but called off the chase when she entered more populated areas for safety reasons.
The chase ended when Nenna collided with another vehicle at Penn Avenue and Krick Lane in South Heidelberg Township. Nenna suffered severe injuries, including a skull fracture. The driver of the other vehicle suffered a fractured vertebrae.
Police discovered drug paraphernalia, powdered substances in baggies, over a hundred assorted pills inside Nenna’s vehicle. Police determined from medical test results that Nenna was under the influence of opiates, amphetamines, and tranquilizers at the time of the accident.
