An East Deer woman faces drunken driving charges after a wild accident on Route 28 in which she rolled her vehicle and it rode along the guard rail before catching fire.

Renee M. Nacy, 46 of Creighton, allegedly had a blood-alcohol content in excess of .08 after blood tests were taken at a Pittsburgh hospital, state police said.

According to a trooper who witnessed the accident, Nacy was driving a 2012 Kia Optima northbound on Route 28 about a half-mile south of the Harmar exit just before 1 a.m.

The vehicle went off the roadway into a ditch, then up a hillside. It then came down and went onto a guard rail on the driver's side for more than 100 feet before rolling across all three road lanes on its roof and catching fire.

A trooper who was trying to extinguish the fire then observed Nacy walking away from the accident and placed her in custody.
