The man suffered serious injuries to his foot and ankle, for which he was hospitalized, ABC Action News reported.
Before he was rushed from the scene, Bell-Babineaux told the man, “It was no accident. You are dreaming,” deputies told the news station.
An arrest report obtained by ABC Action News indicated Bell-Babineaux was disoriented at the scene of the crash, barefoot and with bloodshot eyes. She attempted to hide from deputies in some nearby bushes, according to the report.
Deputies said in the report that Bell-Babineaux refused both breath and blood tests to determine if she was impaired, the news station reported. Crash investigators said they found numerous prescription pills in her Mercedes, including 18 pills for which she had no prescription.
Bell-Babineaux is charged with possession of a controlled substance, driving under the influence with serious bodily injury and driving under the influence with property damage, ABC Action News reported. The estimate on the property damage caused in the crash was about $25,000.
