UPDATE Woman Arrested For DWI, Not For Alcohol-Related Cause

Wichita Falls Police say a woman involved in a multi-vehicle wreck is still charged with DWI... but not because of alcohol-related causes.

41-year-old Jill Elaine Wilson was arrested yesterday morning around 8 after her Mazda hatchback turned onto Southwest Pkwy from Cypress Ave., striking two vehicles. When officers arrived and interviewed Wilson, they then placed her in handcuffs.

Police say Wilson told them she didn't realize she had been involved in a multi-vehicle wreck and thought she fell asleep behind the wheel. Reports show she failed several tasks in a field sobriety test, but not because of alcohol. Wilson told officers she had taken multiple medications for chronic pain.

Authorities say Wilson is still charged with DWI.
