I-95 Demon Run from North Carolina to Pennsylvania: Sarah Elizabeth Collins Arrested in Parking Lot of Chick-fil-A for DUI with 2 Kids in Car
STAFFORD, VA. The drug use of those who aspire to become new statistics in the fatal overdose column features another Meth-Mom on a morning druggie interstate trip to Pennsylvania. In this madcap adventure, at least it was for her hungry children as they wound up at the Chick-Fil-A just off I-95 in Stafford when their mother pulled into the parking lot and passed out at the wheel of her slumbercoach minivan.
Stafford Sheriff David Decatur reports that Sara Elizabeth Collins, 35, of Chambersburg, Penn., was arrested on Sept. 20, 2018, in the parking lot of the Chick-fil-A on Route 17 in Stafford County for driving under the influence with two children in the vehicle.
Police say that at approximately 7:44 a.m., Stafford Sheriff Deputy Gale responded to a reported overdose at 1094 International Parkway. The caller observed a woman hunched over the steering wheel of a silver minivan with Pennsylvania license plates.
The deputy approached the vehicle and observed a woman frantically moving around in the driver’s seat. The deputy noticed that Collins was very jittery, had pinpoint pupils and bloodshot eyes. There were two juveniles, a four-year-old and a fourteen-year-old, in the vehicle with her. The children were later turned over to Stafford County Child Protective Services until a family member could pick them up.
The suspect told deputies she took several pills earlier that morning and then she hit the highway.
Police say a search of the vehicle following her arrest revealed drug paraphernalia and over 150 prescription pills. The driver was identified as Sara Elizabeth Collins, 35, of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. She told the deputy she was driving from North Carolina to her home in Pennsylvania.
Collins was one ticked-off alleged junkie when was taken into custody and incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail on a secured bond. She is charged with possession of a controlled substance, felony child neglect, and driving under the influence with children in the vehicle.
