There’s no excuse for crashing a car, let alone doing it while under the influence of alcohol so when we found out that a 21-year-old girl did all of the above – in a Maserati Quattroporte, no less – we kind of figured that she’s going to be in a heck of a lot of trouble.

After having one too many alcoholic beverages for her own good, Alex Ford decided to have an even better time behind the wheel of the borrowed Maserati. Initial reports indicated of a speeding Quattroporte to which, Officer Tracy Sheets was quick to respond to.

It didn’t take long for Ford and Sheets to meet though, after the Quattroporte crashed head-on into Sheets’ police cruiser, severely injuring the police officer and leaving Ford in a pretty bad mess of her own.

Both ladies were taken to a hospital and after some initial concerns about their status, both Ford and Sheets have since been upgraded to good and fair conditions, respectively.

As far as Ford is concerned, her good fortune was all too fleeting as after a blood draw determined her alcohol level, a warrant was issued for the reckless driver where she’s facing charges of intoxicated assault causing serious body injury to a peace officer.

We don’t mind sounding like a broken record in the interest of safety, but drinking under the influence has never – and will never be – a good idea.

Haha, they still need some lecturing of not drinking and then driving.

I’d say take away her license and don’t allow her to drive again. The truth is, I have experience crashing when I was drunk and it is not a great experience. I do hope that others realize it before it happens to them like it happened to me.

It’s really not advisable to drive when you’re drunk because of the high percentage of dealing with the man with scyther, you know what I mean. Good thing both are now in better condition.

Discipline is really of the essence. Why do people cannot just refuse driving when they are drunk. Good thing he landed to a police car. Now, she won’t have a hard time to deal with the trouble she made.
