Joelle C. Stoker, 20

A crash caused by an underage drunken woman driving on I-10 in Baton Rouge early Sunday morning sent two people to the hospital with broken bones, police said.

Joelle C. Stoker, 20, was arrested on counts of vehicular negligent injuring, failure to maintain control, reckless operation and DWI, according to a Baton Rouge Police report.

While driving east on Interstate 10 near the College Drive exit at 2:54 a.m., Stoker drifted into the path of a motorcycle with a driver and a passenger riding it, causing a collision, the document said.

Stoker showed signs of impairment and admitted to drinking, according to the report. Her blood-alcohol content was 0.172, the report says. In Louisiana, a blood-alcohol content of 0.02 percent in a person under 21 is presumptive evidence of drunken driving.

The driver of the motorcycle was taken to a hospital with possible hip and leg fractures, and the passenger suffered a broken leg and hip, according to the report.

Stoker, of 9450 Corsica Ave., Baton Rouge, was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
