Police: Driver in East Pothouse Road Crash Was Drunk

Fire crews had to remove the driver from her Jeep after the January 2 accident.

A Phoenixville woman was under the influence of alcohol when she crashed her car on East Pothouse Road last week, police are reporting.

Kelly Boyce, 35, was charged with four counts of DUI and an additional charge of careless driving after the January 2 accident.

According to court documents, that Wednesday at 8:49 p.m., Phoenixville Police reported to the scene of a one-vehicle accident on the 100 block of E. Pothouse Road.  The vehicle, a Jeep, had heavy front-end damage but Boyce was uninjured.

By the reckoning of the accident investigators, Boyce failed to negotiate a curve properly and drove off the roadway; across the opposite lane and into two trees, the second one head on.

Boyce was removed from the vehicle by a fire rescue team, but she refused medical treatment, telling medical personnel on the scene that she was “okay.”

When Phoenixville Police arrived, they observed that Boyce was slurring her speech and smelled like alcohol. She failed three field sobriety tests and was taken to Phoenixville Hospital to have her blood drawn.

Kelly Boyce has a preliminary hearing scheduled on February 7.

Thank goodness she didn't hurt or kill someone.

This is the same woman who was in the news four moths ago for allegedly assaulting her roommate "after she assaulted her male roommate in their home, kicking him in the groin in full view of officers". http://snipurl.com/263pnm3

Ray, they charge with four counts until the blood results come back on which count of DUI they are charged with.

Ray, they charge four counts of DUI until the blood results come back on what the BAC level was. That is when they decide which count to charge them with.

This is the same woman who is flagged from several bars in Phoenixville! If she has any friends left one of them should encourage her to go to rehab! What a shame, a drunk at such a young age! If you can't hang with the big dogs, stay on the porch!
