A Sandusky woman was arrested Thursday morning after she allegedly fled a crash scene.

Chelsa Mundy, 37, of the 500 block of E. Parish St., was charged with operating a vehicle under the influence, leaving a crash scene, failure to control a vehicle and driving under suspension.

Sandusky dispatchers received multiple phone calls at about 2 a.m. of a woman walking away from a three-car crash in the 400 block of Tyler St., according to a Sandusky police report.

Officers soon found Mundy walking about a block away, at Lindsley and Hendry streets, so they brought her back to the scene.

Her mangled Plymouth Neon smashed into the back of a Chevy Impala, which in turn struck a Chevy Malibu, the report said.

Officers hauled Mundy to the police station, where a breathalyzer registered her blood-alcohol content at 0.217 percent, the report said. The legal limit for driving in Ohio is 0.08 percent.

Officers gave her several opportunities to contact someone to pick her up, but Mundy kept providing incorrect phone numbers. She was eventually taken to the Erie County jail and released later Thursday.
