YARMOUTH – Yarmouth Police are charging a local woman with drunken driving in connection with a three-car crash last week.

The accident happened on November 8 just before 2:30 p.m. on White’s Path Road near National Grid.

Police said multiple empty Smirnoff ‘nip’ sized alcohol bottles were found on the floor in the front passenger seat area of a car driven by Dakota Linnell, 21, of Bass River.

A brown bag containing more nips was also located in the same area of the suspect vehicle that had caused the crash. A total of 9 nips were recovered.

Two people were transported to Cape Cod Hospital by members of the Yarmouth Fire Department.
