Posted: Updated:
HAWKINS COUNTY, TN (WJHL) - A car crash in Hawkins County ends up sending the driver to jail on drug charges.

Deputies responded to a single car crash on Cold Comfort Road just north of Church Hill Thursday.

The only person in the car was the driver, Kathy Davis, 53, and officers said they could tell she was intoxicated.

When police searched her car they found a large bag of pill bottles with Oxycodone and generic Xanax. The drugs were prescribed to Davis and had been filled that day.

Investigators said that Davis was missing almost 150 pills and after further investigation Davis gave some of the missing pills to another person.

Davis is charged with DUI, Failure to Exercise Due Care and Possession of a Scheduled II and IV Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver.

Davis is free on bond and will be in court Monday.
