SEAFORD – Delaware State Police arrested a Bridgeville woman Monday on a 5th offense DUI after she was involved in a single motor vehicle crash.

Zabrina M. Wilson

The incident occurred April 30 at approximately 5:44 p.m. Troopers were dispatched to a single-vehicle rollover crash on Atlanta Road south of Hill Road.

Troopers discovered that a blue 1989 Chevrolet S10 pickup truck had been involved in a crash in which the operator had fled the scene. Investigation revealed the operator attempted to navigate a turn, lost control and flipped several times before coming to rest on all four wheels.

A search of the area led to the discovery of the driver, 36-year-old Zabrina M. Wilson.  While speaking with Wilson, troopers detected an odor of alcohol and a DUI investigation ensued. A computer check revealed that Wilson had four previous DUI convictions, making this her fifth offense, state police spokeswoman Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe said.

Wilson was also found to be in possession of marijuana, Cpl. Jaffe said.

Wilson was taken to Troop 5 where she was charged with 5th offense DUI (felony), leaving the scene of an accident, failure to provide information at a collision scene, failure to have insurance identification, failure to report a collision, and possession of marijuana.

Wilson was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court 2 and committed to the Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution on $6,504 secured bond.
