The M/V crash was witnessed by a subject who followed the suspect vehicle. Once the suspect vehicle stopped at its residence the operator got out of the vehicle and started to yell at the witness. Officers arrived on scene and contacted the suspect who was identified as Ashley Morgan Perkins. Perkins had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on her breath and person.
