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.
