Two at the Wheel Arrested on Drunk Driving Charges
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) _ One car rammed a police cruiser but authorities charged two women, saying they were intoxicated when one of them mistakenly put the car into reverse and the other stepped on the gas pedal.
Police said the two shared the controls Thursday night because neither of them could operate the manual shift alone.
Terry Walters, 35, was in the driver’s seat operating the clutch, brake and gas pedals, police said. Amy Denise Weckman, 23, was negotiating the gear shift from the passenger seat.
Both were charged with drunken driving, police said.
