A man and a woman were injured around 1:20 Thursday morning when the driver lost control of the car at 24th and Davenport.
Investigators say a 2001 Chevy Cavalier was southbound on 24th St when it left its lane and struck a curb. The car then traveled onto the sidewalk where it struck a tree and overturned.
The Chevy came to rest back in the middle of the southbound lanes of 24th Street. The driver, Tiffany Deemer suffered non-life threatening facial injuries. She was cited for DUI, driving under suspension and reckless driving.
Both the driver and the passenger of the Chevy were transported to CUMC by OFD medics. Alcohol use is being investigated as a factor in this collision. Restraint use by both occupants is unknown at this time.
Kenneth M Deemer was treated for minor injuries to his chest.
