By on June 19, 2017 in WNDB News

Ormond Beach, FL – A 25-year-old Ormond Beach woman is facing some significant jail time for drunk driving and leaving the scene of a fatal crash after her boyfriend tipped off police.

Jessica Struthers was arrested after she hit and killed Charles Bofinger, 63, of Pittsburgh as he was crossing S. Atlantic Ave. at Milsap Rd. at about 11:15 PM on Saturday night.

Investigators say her white SUV matched the description of the vehicle seen leaving the scene, and the damage on the front end of her vehicle positively connected her to the hit-and-run.

Her blood alcohol level was measured at .105 at the jail, hours after the crash, well above the legal limit of .08.
