Entry Description

Hobart-Yesterday at approximately 10:53 p.m, troopers came in contact with a female driver on I-80 east bound near the 12.3 mile marker who nearly struck several emergency vehicles.

Preliminary investigation by Corporal Frederick L. Blohm Jr. revealed that troopers were assisting fire department personnel at a semi fire on I-80.  The trooper’s cars and fire equipment had their emergency lights activated.  A black 2008 GMC Yukon driven by Ayesha M. Crawford, 32 years old from Chicago was heading east bound approaching the fire scene at a high rate of speed.  Crawford finally locked up the brakes and came to an uncontrollable stop between Corporal Blohm’s police car and another vehicle.  Crawford’s Yukon attempted to leave the scene when Corporal Blohm attempted to stop it.  Crawford then headed the Yukon towards a flatbed wrecker that had its deck down and started to proceed up the wrecker deck.  She then drove the Yukon off the side of the wrecker deck where Corporal Blohm finally got Crawford to stop. 

After further investigation, it was revealed that Crawford was driving impaired and was arrested for Operating While Intoxicated Refusal.  Inside the Yukon were three children, 10, 6 and 5 years old.  Crawford was also found to have two felony warrants for Operating While Intoxicated and two Misdemeanor warrants for Driving While Intoxicated.  Crawford was booked into Lake County Jail on charges of:

• Operating While Intoxicated Refusal-Class A Misdemeanor
• Habitual Traffic Violator – 10 years-Class D Felony
• Operating While Intoxicated Endangering-Felony
• Operating While Intoxicated-Prior-Class D Felony
• Operating While Intoxicated-Passengers less than 18 years old-Class D Felony
• Neglect of a Dependant three children under the age of 11 years-Class D Felony
• Two Failure to Appear Warrants-Class D Felony
• Two Failure To Appear Warrants-Class A Misdemeanor
Assisting at the scene was Indiana State Trooper Brian Rubesha.

All criminal defendants are to be presumed innocent until, and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
