Hit-and-run crash with injuries leads to 5th offense OWI arrest

TOWN OF JANESVILLE, Wis. - A woman was taken to the hospital after she was rear-ended by an alleged intoxicated driver.

Deputies from the Rock County Sheriff's Office responded to a crash on W. State Highway 11, near North Pahl Road in the Town of Janesville, just after 12:30 p.m. Saturday.

According to the Sheriff's Office, 34-year-old Alanna Zastrow, of Stoughton, didn't slow down when the car in front of her slowed and signaled to turn into a driveway. Zastrow allegedly rear-ended the car and kept driving. She eventually crashed into a snowbank near W. County Highway WC.

Deputies said Zastrow admitted to taking intoxicants before the crash and a field sobriety test showed her blood alcohol content at 0.26. 

She's charged with a fifth-offense OWII and cited for numerous things, including hit-and-run causing injury and failing to install an ignition interlock device.

The driver of the other car, a 58-year-old woman, was taken to the hospital, where she's expected to be treated and released with minor injuries.
