A 69-year-old Portsmouth woman was charged with drunken-driving on Thursday, July 11 after she allegedly crashed her car in Middletown while driving with a blood-alcohol content of more than twice the legal limit.

Lorraine Perry, 69, of 19 Sherman Ave., Portsmouth, was arrested around 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 11 after she was allegedly involved in an accident at the corner of Valley Road and West Main Road. She was charged with driving under the influence, said police.

At the scene of the accident, Perry allegedly told police she did not know what happened. Police said she was unsteady on her feet, but they did not ask her to perform field sobriety tests because of her age. At the station, police said she registered a blood alcohol content of .165 and .168. The legal driving limit is a blood alcohol content of .08.

Do you have information on the accident on Rt 24 in Portsmouth on late Sat/early Sunday (~2am)? There was a car on the jersey barrier.
