A Downingtown woman was intoxicated when she caused a three-car accident in the borough last weekend, are reporting.

The girl was following the guy home on the motorcycle, he had just pick her up in the bar. I think maybe he should have also been tested for alcohol levels. He just left a bar in Phoenixville and was driving a motorcycle. I dont think he was in the bar drinking water???
