Magnolia woman facing DUI charges after crashing into police vehicle


REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. – A 44-year-old Magnolia woman is facing multiple charges after crashing into a police vehicle in Rehoboth Beach. Police say the crash happened early Sunday morning.

Delaware State Police say around 3:10 a.m. Sunday, Angela Robinson was speeding in her Lexus ES350 on Coastal Highway (SR1) in the area of Conquest Road. That’s when police say she ran into the back of a police Chevrolet Tahoe, being driven by an 11-year veteran trooper. Police say the impact caused Robinson’s Lexus to slide through a grass center median, and spin in to the other side of the road. The Tahoe was pushed forward into the shoulder of the highway.

The trooper was taken to Beebe Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Robinson was not hurt in the crash. Investigators say Robinson was suspected to be driving under the influence of alcohol. She was taken to Troop 7 and charged with 2nd degree vehicular assault, driving under the influence of alcohol, speeding, and failure to have insurance identification in her possession.

Robinson was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court #3, and taken to Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Center on $3,400 cash bond.
