Teenager charged in drunken driving accident in Ann Arbor
Ann Arbor police said a teenager was driving drunk when she failed to yield and struck another car in December, leaving the driver seriously injured.
Gina Bojovic, 19, of Northville is charged with operating while intoxicated causing serious injury and operating while intoxicated.
She has not been arraigned in court.
Ann Arbor police said Bojovic was driving east on North University Avenue and, as she was crossing Washtenaw Avenue, failed to yield for a northbound car at about 5 a.m. Dec. 4. Bojovic had a flashing red light and the other car had a blinking yellow light, police said.
Bojovic's car hit the driver's side of the other car, police said, leaving a 55-year-old Ypsilanti woman seriously injured. Police said Bojovic had neck pain.
Both drivers were taken by ambulance to University of Michigan Hospital, police spokeswoman Lt. Renee Bush said. Bojovic consented to a blood draw that showed her blood-alcohol level was 0.14, court records say. In Michigan, it’s illegal to drive with a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 or higher.
Police said Bojovic told investigators that she was returning home from a party and got lost when the accident happened.
