A woman was arrested on Saturday for driving under the influence of drugs after she reportedly drove a U.S. Postal Service truck into a ditch in Harrah.

According to the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s office, deputies responded to the report of an accident involving a U.S. Postal Service vehicle in the 1300 block of David Drive in Harrah. When deputies arrived, they found a mail truck that had been driven into a ditch, and was stuck.

Deputies said they spoke with the driver, 47-year-old Lee Ann Turner, and noticed that she seemed dazed, had slurred speech, and staggered when walking.

Turner told the deputies that she was not injured, and admitted to taking several prescription pain pills in just a few hours of time.

Turner was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on a complaint of driving under the influence of drugs. She posted her $1,000 bail and was released on Sunday.
