Female Driver Charged with Driving While Intoxicated
A Weslaco woman is behind bars after being accused of a hit and run in the city.
Yvette Joy Flores, 18 years-old, was driving on the 1200 block of North Texas Boulevard late Tuesday evening when police say she ignored a stop sign, hit someone, then left the scene. Flores also lost control of the vehicle she was driving and crashed it. A male passenger and a 5 year-old girl were in the car during the crash. Police later arrested Flores at her home and she was charged with DWI with a child under 15 and failure to stop and give information. Her bond was set at more than $17,000 dollars.
