LAKE DELTON, Wis. — A Poynette woman was arrested on multiple tentative charges, including tenth-offense operating while under the influence, following a crash on Interstate 90/94 between Lake Delton and Portage Tuesday evening, the Wisconsin State Patrol said.

In a news release Tuesday night, the agency said it received a report of a crash involving a Toyota Corolla and a semi-truck on the highway in Sauk County just after 5 p.m. The Corolla drove under the semi, causing blockage on the highway.

The driver of the Corolla reportedly fled the scene. Witnesses said she said she had warrants for her arrest before she ran.

Troopers found the woman and arrested her on tentative charges of operating after revocation – second offense (OWI related) and tenth-offense OWI, according to the release.
