Woman faces OUI charges after head-on crash caught on camera

A 53-year-old Scituate woman is facing numerous charges in connection with an OUI crash that was caught on video.

Other motorists recorded a video that shows a Jeep Grand Cherokee driving erratically and on the wrong side of the road on Route 3A on Sunday.

Police say she was the driver seen in a video swerving over both sides of Route 3A Sunday evening, almost leaving the road, all while apparently ignoring pleas from a family in another auto to pull over.

The driver of the Taurus, a 69-year-old woman from Brookline, was seriously hurt and rushed to South Shore Hospital.

Another vehicle, a 2015 Ford Edge operated by a 42-year-old Madison male, was also damaged in the crash after the driver swerved to avoid Farrell.

Farrell was charged with OUI - Liquor, OUI Liquor & Serious Injury & Negligent, Negligent Operation of a MV, and Failure to Drive in Marked Lanes.

Laura Farrell, 53, of Scituate, faces multiple charges after crashing head-on into another vehicle on Route 3A in Cohasset around 5 p.m. on Sunday.

After the crash police were provided cellphone video of the events leading up to the crash, and the crash itself, by a 16-year-old passenger in a vehicle behind Farrell. Cohasset Police Chief William Quigley said, "It's a miracle that nobody was killed in this crash". Route 3A was shut down for approximately 1-hour due to the crash.

Farrell failed to appear in court Tuesday and a warrant was issued for her arrest. "The video is heart stopping to watch".
