REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - Police have arrested a Felton woman on DUI charges after a crash in Rehoboth Beach.

On Sunday around 7:15 p.m., Rehoboth Beach police were called to the northbound lanes of the Coastal Highway Rehoboth-Lewes Canal Bridge for a report of a property damage collision.

The investigating officer spoke with the driver, 37-year-old Kristol Zimmerman, and observed that she was showing signs of intoxication. Police administered a standardized field sobriety test, and say Zimmerman showed additional signs of intoxication ultimately leading to her arrest.

According to police, Zimmerman was driving in the left lane of Coastal Highway northbound when the car in front of her stopped. Police say Zimmerman was following the car too closely, resulting in a rear-end collision.

No one was injured during the collision; however, police said the investigation revealed that Zimmeran had her 2-year-old son in the rear passenger seat of the car. It was further determined that her son, while in a car seat, was not properly secured.

Zimmerman was arrested and charged with one count of endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor, one count of driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, and one count of following a motor vehicle too closely. Zimmerman was released on $1,001 unsecured bail.
