57-year-old Cynthia Giles was arrested Saturday afternoon after her car collided with another sending five people to the Backus emergency department, including three children. At the intersection of Norwich Rd and Babcock Avenue, Giles attempted a left hand turn at the same time a tan Honda CRV driven by James Watt (33-years-old) was nearing that same area. 37-year-old Stephanie Maciver, 14-year-old Victoria Currier, 9-year-old Allyeah Long, and 2-year-old Charlotte Watt, who were passengers in Watt’s vehicle, were all transported for possible minor injuries. Giles was asked to preform the standard sobriety test after a strong odor of alcohol and slurred speech was present, and she was unable to pass. GIles was charged with Failure to Yield Right of Way at an Intersection and Operating a Motor Vehicle Under the Influence of Alcohol and or Drugs. She was later released on a $2,500 non-surety bond and will appear on June 5, 2017 at the Danielson Superior Court. The accident investigation remains open.
