A young woman from Cologne is accused of fleeing the scene of a drunken crash early Monday morning in Shakopee.

Authorities say the 19-year-old, who has not been formally charged and therefore has not been identified, had been eastbound on Eagle Creek Boulevard when she allegedly drifted across the road, hit a driveway and culvert and began to roll. Her Toyota Corolla sideswiped an outbuilding, collided with two vehicles parked on the property and came to rest on its side.

The owner of the other vehicles found the wreckage around 5 a.m. Monday and police called a family member who co-owns the Corolla in order to locate the driver. The woman had minor cuts and abrasions. She was arrested on suspicion of fourth-degree drunken driving.
