Hot Springs Police Officers Nuñez and Larkin were patrolling around the mean streets of Central Hot Springs last week when they happened across a traffic crash where a black 2016 Nissan Sentra collided with the train trestle on Shady Grove Road near Belding Street.
They made contact with Edna Elizabeth Estell, 49, of Mississippi Street in Hot Springs. She was allegedly sitting in the driver’s seat with what the report describes as a strong odor of intoxicants on her person, red & bloodshot & watery eyes and holding an open bottle of whiskey in her right hand.
When officers asked her how much she had to drink, she allegedly replied “not enough”. She then allegedly exited her vehicle, was unsteady on her feet, refused to perform Standardized Field Sobriety Testing and requested to go to the hospital.
Ms. Estell allegedly refused to provide a blood sample (for law enforcement BAC% purposes) at the hospital.
The police report notes that Ms. Estelle’s driver’s license was suspended at the time of the crash.
A passenger in the vehicle was allegedly injured in the crash.
