Police report that a 19-year-old driver was arrested in North Carolina after huffing dust remover and passing out while driving. After the teenager passed out, she crashed her car into another vehicle that was carrying two passengers this past Tuesday morning. Her vehicle then rebounded off a tree while traveling 45 mph. Police report that the driver, who was clearly under the influence, escaped the accident with minor injuries.

Randi Petrolino, the DUI offender, drove across a bridge into Wrightsville Beach during early morning hours. Police say that Petrolino was supposed to turn left toward the North Carolina Wildlife boat ramp, but passed out instead. Officers say that Petrolino's vehicle was originally traveling 70 mph and had decreased to a speed of 45 mph when it struck the tree.

According to law enforcement agents, the car accident resulted from Petrolino inhaling CleanSafe and consuming alcohol before stepping behind the wheel and driving. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured during the collision.
