(Fargo, ND) -- A Fargo woman is in custody under DUI charges following a rollover crash along I-29 in Fargo.
The North Dakota Highway Patrol says 40 year-old Esperanza Villegas Mata was traveling southbound on I-29 around 1:00 p.m when she lost control, entered the median, and overturned. No one was injured during the event. Authorities say the roads were slick with ice and covered in snow, and say Mata was traveling too fast with the road conditions. Officials on the scene tested Mata following the crash, and arrested her for driving under the influence of drugs.
Authorities are asking drivers to be careful, especially with poor road conditions. They say the best way to stay safe on the roads is to leave room for other vehicles, wear seat belts, and drive sober. They also ask drivers to follow the law and turn on headlights and taillights when snow falls, or when blowing snow limits visibility to 1,000 feet or less.
