Alleged drunk driver plows car into Keene building

KEENE — An 18-year-old Connecticut woman was arrested for drunken driving after police say she drove her Jeep into a house.

Sgt. Jason Short said the woman was speeding, failed to negotiate a curve in the road, lost control of the vehicle and smashed into the house, disrupting electric, water and sewer service and leaving a gaping hole in the basement wall.

The accident happened shortly after midnight Sunday morning at 50 Marlboro St.

There were no injuries, but the house will need repair.

“The structure is sound except for a big hole in the foundation,” Short said. It is an old apartment house so the first floor is  not right near ground level, it is elevated about two-and-a-half feet.

The driver, Samantha Murphy, 18, of Milford, Conn., was charged with drunken driving and released on personal recognizance.
