Officers were dispatched to a complaint of a motor vehicle accident on Route 34 Westbound, where one of the drivers attempted to evade the scene at 12:28 a.m. on April 25.
During the investigation, police learned that Scarlet Iff, 43, of 473 Sportsman Road, Orange, had been driving a vehicle that struck another at the intersection of Routes 34 and Orange Center Road, then drove away.
Officers caught up to the evading vehicle a short distance away, and had the Iff perform standardized roadside sobriety tests. She was subsequently taken into custody and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI), evading the scene of an accident and following too closely.
She was released after posting $1,500 bond for court May 12.
