AUSTIN (KXAN) — A woman was charged with intoxication assault, a third degree felony, after crashing her vehicle into a business on North Lamar Boulevard early Sunday.
The incident happened at around 3:30 a.m. in the 8800 block of N. Lamar Blvd.
According to a police affidavit, officers responding to the scene found Sasha Flores, 24, in the driver’s seat of the crashed vehicle, which was completely inside the business.
