A few blocks away, at 4600 South 200 East, she tried to turn into an apartment complex but hit a tree and rolled her jeep.

Sgt. Mike Obrey with the Murray Police Department explained, "We don't have any indication that she lives in this area. We think this was just a quick way [for her] to get away from the original scene."

The driver of the white car was treated for face injuries at the scene. The woman driving the jeep was taken to the hospital.

Police say alcohol may have been involved.
