PORTAGE, Ind. -- Two women who took turns steering a broken-down vehicle face drunk driving charges after their slow-moving car crashed into a parked car.
Kaylyn Kezy, 34, of Gary, was pushing the disabled car, while Melissa Fredenburg, 32, of Chesterton, steered from the passenger seat, police said. The two were moving the car into a parking lot at a nearby motel early Friday in the city about 10 miles east of Gary.
Police said both women had a blood-alcohol levels of 0.17 percent, more than twice the state's legal limit to drive.
Authorities said the women were operating the vehicle while intoxicated -- even though the car's engine wasn't working. A prosecutor acknowledged the charges could be difficult to prosecute in court.
