CAMPTON HILLS – A Campton Hills woman with a history of driving impaired has been charged with felony DUI after a one-car crash on Bolcum Road, according to a Campton Hills police report.

Upon arriving at the 39W500 block of Bolcum Road at 10:09 p.m. Friday, Campton Hills police reportedly found Diane M. Murray, 50, in her 2013 Acura MDX, which had hit a pole.

Murray still was pressing the gas pedal, making the car slip sideways in the ditch, police reported, noting an officer put the vehicle in park and turned off the ignition.

Two bottles of vodka – one partially consumed and one empty – were on the passenger floor, according to police.

Murray, who was unresponsive but moaning and opening her eyes, was taken to Delnor Hospital in Geneva, police reported. Her vehicle was towed from the scene.

An assistant state’s attorney approved charges for aggravated DUI and aggravated DUI with a blood-alcohol level greater than 0.16 percent.

Murray, of the 39W400 block of Abbey Glen Court, was charged with DUI on July 3, 2008, and July 23, 2008, according to the report.

Police also ticketed Murray for improper transportation of alcohol and failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, police reported.
