A North Tonawanda woman is behind bars after crashing her SUV into a light pole Sunday morning.
Police say 35- year-old Natasha Colbert sent the pole flying 60 feet down the the intersection of Young Street on the Twin City highway , knocking down three mile marks and two street signs.
She told officers she hit the pole “to avoid hitting a skunk“.
Authorities found a bottle of vodka along with a plastic cup with ice.
Colbert was charged with DWI, operating a vehicle over .08, open alcohol in a motor vehicle and other charges.
