Police then say Hammond fled the scene, but was apprehended nearby.

Reports say Hammond's breath smelled of alcoholic beverages and toxicology tests were ordered, both Hammond and her passenger, 36-year-old Tamela Young of Bedford were treated and released at the scene for neck pain.

No charges or citations have been filed according to the report.
