5th Offense DUI After Crash

The Delaware State Police have arrested a Milford woman after she was involved in a single vehicle crash.

The incident occurred on June 29, 2019 at approximately 9:46 p.m., when Troopers were dispatched to Shawnee Road, at Harvest Lane, Greenwood for a vehicle overturned.  Upon arrival, Troopers made contact with the driver, 53-year-old Patricia J. Prettyman, when an odor of alcohol was detected and a DUI investigation ensued.  A computer check revealed that Prettyman had four previous DUI convictions, making this her fifth offense.

There were two passengers in the vehicle including an adult male and his 11-year-old son.  Prettyman and the two passengers were transported to the Bayhealth Sussex Campus.  The 11-year-old child was later transported to the A.I. DuPont Hospital with serious injuries.

Prettyman was released from the hospital and transported back to Troop 5 where she was charged with the following:

  • 5th Offense Driving Under the Influence
  • Vehicular Assault First Degree
  • Endanger Welfare of Child
  • Endangering the Welfare of a Child While DUI
  • Vehicular Assault Third Degree
  • Driving While Suspended
