Yet another case of an Indian-American drinking and driving recklessly, almost hurting the people in the way, took place in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. The woman, identified as Sarah Ramasammy, 26, plowed into the water, missing the people nearby narrowly.
According to Volusia County Sheriff’s office, the Orlando woman had blood alcohol almost twice the legal limit. The incident happened at Smyrna Dunes Park, and a sheriff’s helicopter flying above recorded the scene where people gathered around the car in the water.
Her alcohol level was 0.153, twice the legal limit of .08 under Florida law. Ramasammy was charged with DUI and reckless driving. She also got a ticket for failure to obey a traffic control device. Eventually, she was booked into the Volusia County Branch jail.
However, Ramasammy bonded out after posting $1500 bail. As per witnesses, she was driving at 50 mph and narrowly missed a child and dog at the dog-friendly park at the beach. Ramasammy, however, said nothing like that happened.
