Woman Says Psychiatric Medication to Blame for Crashing Through Business

BROOKSVILLE – Psychiatric medications is what a Brooksville woman says caused her to crash her car through the window of a hearing aid business on Cortez Blvd.

According officials, 46-year-old Olga Esther Caceres-Acevedo crashed her 1999 Honda through the plate glass window of Zounds Hearing Aid Center, Saturday afternoon. There were no injuries and the business was unoccupied at the time of the crash.

During the crash investigation, Deputy Aaron Cochran says he noticed Acevedo displaying several signs of impairment. Acevedo explained during an interview with Dep. Cochran that she could not remember how the crash happened and that she was just trying to park her car. Acevedo further explained that she was under the influence of Klonopin (clonazepam) and several other psychiatric medications.

After a battery of field sobriety exercises, Acevedo was placed under arrest and charged with driving under the influence.

  • ” Do not drive or do anything else that could be dangerous until you know how this medicine affects you. ”
    This is the warning on this medication. NOT as you suggest “not allowed to drive”. As for taking her license away I feel that to be unrealistic & paranoid!!! YES, SHE SHOULD HAVE WAITED TILL SHE KNEW WHAT EFFECT THIS WOULD HAVE ON HER. Many people on narcotic medications are driving our roads without problems. Can you tell who they are???? DO WE KNOW IF SHE JUST STARTED THIS MED OR HAS BEEN ON IT FOR A TIME??? NO!!!!

  • I had a scary experience with 2 medications prescribed by a doctor. Drove on 19 and didn’t remember 4 or 5 traffic lights !!!!! I immediately quit taking those medicines. It’s a shame the lady didn’t do the same. I hope she stops the medication and gets a different approach to her problem. Doctors are not 100% knowledgeable about effects on patients without being told something is wrong. Be your own advocate, check internet for info and most of all IF IT SEEMS ODD OR OFF – STOP TAKING THE MEDS & CALL YOUR DOCTOR.
