Instead of checking the damages, she reportedly attempted to drive off.

This caused power outages in several buildings and traffic lights. The incident also caused several businesses to close down temporarily until the repairs were completed after five hours.

The police also asked her to take a breathalyzer test to determine whether she drove under the influence. However, the actress refused to do so and told them she would undergo a blood test instead in a hospital.

“The report from the citizen stated that she hit the guardrails several times. The driver wants to conduct a blood alcohol test, so we will confirm the exact charges after the test results are out,” a police official said, per Star News.
