(LegalLaw247.com, August 22, 2013 ) Palm Beach, FL – Early Wednesday morning a West Palm Beach woman was charged with driving under the influence after she was involved in a single-vehicle wreck near The Breakers on Palm Beach Island.
Danielle Parenti, 23, was driving southbound with a passenger around 2a.m when she swerved to avoid hitting an animal that ran into the roadway. Her vehicle went into a spin, hit a curb, and rolled over. The accident was reported by another passing vehicle.
When authorities arrived Parenti failed a sobriety test and was taken to the Palm Beach County Jail and given a breathalyzer test; she tested at a .15 and .14 which is nearly double the state limit.
Parenti was arrested and charged with driving under the influence as well as causing serious bodily harm as her passenger was taken to Good Samaritan after suffering lacerations to the head.
