Lawrence police arrested a 21-year-old Lawrence woman for DUI, reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident early Monday after a crash in the 4100 block of West 24th Street.
Sgt. Trent McKinley, a police spokesman, said the woman struck a utility box about 1:40 a.m. after passing another vehicle. The car also struck a tree and parked vehicle.
McKinley said the woman told police she had swerved to avoid a “small animal or bunny” because she was an animal lover. She posted $800 bond, and she was given notice to appear on formal charges June 27 in municipal court.
