An intoxicated woman was the cause of a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of W. Monroe Street and Huron on Friday afternoon when she turned left in front of oncoming traffic. The woman, who was arrested at the scene, was charged with failure to yield and driving under the influence of alcohol. The driver of the second vehicle was transported to Firelands Regional Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Inside the intoxicated woman's car police found a pet cockatoo in a cage in the back seat. Police took the bird to the station where it was picked up by the woman's sister.
