A Lower Saucon Township woman's blood-alcohol concentration was almost four times the legal limit when she allegedly struck a parked car Oct. 2, township police said in a news release.
According to the news release issued Monday, Pamela Lockhoff, 55, of the 1900 block of Foley Avenue was allegedly observed by a witness "driving recklessly while traveling north on Leithsville Road" just before the 5:26 p.m. accident.
When Lockhoff turned right onto Herbert Avenue, she drove over a curb and struck a car that was parked in the grass before leaving the accident scene, police said.
Lockhoff was found "passed out in the grass at her residence" a short distance away, they added.
She was later determined to have a .30 percent blood alcohol concentration (BAC), police said.
The legal BAC limit for most drivers in Pennsylvania is .08 percent.
Lockhoff has been charged with DUI, leaving the scene of an accident and driving on the right side of the roadway, according to police.
