Chatsworth woman arrested for DUI again after fleeing the scene of fiery crash in Dalton

According to a Dalton Police Department incident report, on January 25th, 2023, at 1:25 AM, Officer McDaniel was dispatched to a single-vehicle crash. Dispatch advised that the vehicle had stuck in a tree and was currently completely engulfed in flames. Officer Jenkins and Officer McDaniel responded simultaneously and arrived on the scene at the same time. The homeowner stated that just before the time of the call, a young Hispanic male knocked on their door and made them aware of the fact that a car had just crashed in their yard. She immediately called 911. The officer ran the tag, which returned to a 2016 Mazda6 Touring. The vehicle returned to a Destiny Unique Uribe, 37, of Chatsworth. Around this time, dispatch informed officers that the mother of Destiny had called 911, stating that she was on the phone with her daughter, who was driving while intoxicated. While she was in the middle of talking to destiny over the phone, she heard a violent crash just before the line disconnected. Officers were eventually able to locate Destiny and took her into custody. Officers and medical personnel could see that she had scratches and abrasions on her lower abdomen and across her neck, which indicated that Destiny was in the driver’s seat of the vehicle and had her seatbelt on. You could see where the seatbelt left markings on the left side of her neck. Officer McDaniel reported, “[I] could also smell the odor of alcoholic beverages coming from her breath. She was also uneasy on her feet, and her speech was heavily slurred. In addition to this, her eyes were very red and glassy. She initially claimed that she wasn’t the driver of the vehicle and that someone else had picked her up. While she was being treated by EMT’s and being prepped for transport to the emergency room, she was read implied consent. She subsequently gave consent for the state-administered chemical testing of her blood before she was transported. She became very apologetic. She continued to say “I’m sorry” over and over again. Just before being discharged, Destiny vomited and urinated on herself. Destiny was booked into the Whitfield County Jail, charged with DUI less safe, failure to maintain lane, leaving the scene of an accident, and driving without a license on person.
