|According to witnesses, this tree stopped a car from catapulting into Kaleidoscope Dance Company, with a class inside.|
Witnesses say that the car was at the stop light at the corner of S. Fort Thomas and River Road. The late model sedan was third in line and when the light turned green, there was a lapse. When the car started, it immediately veered right and into the pole and tree, stopping before crashing into the businesses.
"She went from zero to something really fast in the blink of an eye," said Debbie Buckley.
Fort Thomas resident and realtor, Ken Warden, was on the scene and rushed to the aid of the woman after she had crashed her car.
"I opened her door to see if she was okay and she seemed dazed. Her face had already swollen up. If that tree hadn’t stopped her, Lord knows what ends up happening. Luckily nothing other than her car and the tree was damaged," he said.
Before Warden and another Farmers' Market vendor knew it, the woman had pulled her door closed, corrected over the curb and continued down southbound on Fort Thomas Avenue.
Minutes later, Fort Thomas Police spotted the car on Brentwood Place, parked legally. Officer Tom Carr arrested Brittany Nunn, 25, and charged her with Alcoholic Intoxication in a Public Place and Leaving the Scene of an Accident.
Nunn was observed walking through yards at Brentwood and was arrested and booked into Campbell County Detention Center.
