According to the Racine County Sheriff's Office, at 5:30 p.m. Friday, deputies were called to the area of McHenry Street and Warren Road in the Town of Burlington for a report of a vehicle that struck a mailbox, trash bins and several trees.

Authorities located the vehicle involved and suspected the driver to be under the influence of alcohol.

The 42-year-old driver, a woman from the Town of Burlington, tested a .16 on a preliminary breath test.

Officials say she was also issued citations for open intoxicants in a motor vehicle and failure to keep a vehicle under control.
