Elon University senior Haley Muratore was arrested Saturday evening on a charge of driving while impaired.
According to the Elon Police Department, Muratore was driving on East Trollinger Avenue when her vehicle ran off the right side of the roadway striking a utility pole. The vehicle then bounced off from the impact and spun into another vehicle in the opposing lane, causing an estimated $10,000 worth of damage.
Upon further inspection, Muratore showed indications of alcohol consumption and a drug analysis showed a blood alcohol content of .17, according to the Elon Police Department. The legal BAC limit is .08 for people over 21.
She was charged with one count of driving while impaired and released on a $500 bond.
Elon News Network reached out to Muratore, but she declined to comment.
This is the second DWI involving Elon students this academic year.
