Comments (0)

A Hampton woman has been charged with driving under the influence after sideswiping a Virginia state trooper, according to police.

According to Virginia State Police spokeswoman Sgt. Michelle Cotten, the collision occurred shortly after 6 a.m. at the intersection of the Hampton Roads Center Parkway and Magruder Boulevard.

Cotten said that 23-year-old Ciara Shavon Palmer was on a ramp from the parkway onto northbound Magruder Boulevard when she made an unsafe lane change and sideswiped the patrol vehicle of Trooper Steven Bethea. He suffered minor injuries and went to a hospital to be checked.

Palmer was uninjured in the crash. Cotten said that police arrested her on charges of DUI, making an unsafe lane change and carrying a concealed weapon, as she had a knife in her purse.
