WEST HARTFORD — Hours after she turned 21, a local woman flipped her car Friday morning and was charged with drunken driving, police said.

Haleigh MacCloy, who turned 21 Thursday, was charged with driving while under the influence of alcohol, traveling too fast and failure to drive right, police said.

MacCloy was released on a promise to appear in court March 13. She was not injured.

The crash happened on Flagg Road, near Albany Avenue, about 4:20 a.m., police said. MacCloy was driving a 2000 Volkswagen Beetle east on Flagg Rd when she lost control of her car, they said.

She struck a snow bank on the right side of the road, then veered to the left side and struck another snow bank, police said. The car rolled onto its passenger side.

MacCloy was able to get out of the car with help from another motorist.

Officers determined she had been driving while intoxicated and placed her under arrest.

Her blood alcohol content was found to be .213 and .207.
