A woman was charged Monday night with public intoxication and three other misdemeanor charges after police received a report that she walked in front of a vehicle on Charles Town Road and caused a three-vehicle crash, according to Berkeley County Magistrate Court records.

In addition to public intoxication, Pamela Sue Webber, 38, of 405 S. Raleigh St., Martinsburg, was arraigned Tuesday on charges of crossing (a roadway at a location) other than a crosswalk, obstructing and false information, according to magistrate court records.

Webber was released from Eastern Regional Jail after bail was posted Tuesday, according to jail records.

The accident in the 2200 block of Charles Town Road was investigated by West Virginia State Police Trooper P.L. North, who was dispatched to the scene at 9:11 p.m., according to court records.

Two witnesses told police that a female who had been drinking at a club in Baker Heights prior to the crash continued walking along Charles Town Road after the vehicles collided, according to court records.


One witness told police that a woman came to his door after crossing a fence at the back of his residence along Dodson Lane and after he heard the sound of the colliding vehicles, according to court records.

After she left the witness' property, North caught up with Webber along Wagner Drive in Baker Heights after she fell while trying to run away from the trooper, according to court records.

A preliminary breath test indicated the defendant had a blood alcohol concentration of .214, according to court records. The legal limit is .08.

Webber denied walking in front of the vehicle and said she had been at the witness' Dodson Lane residence for three hours, according to court records.

State Police Sgt. E.D. Anderson said Tuesday he did not believe the accident victims received life-threatening injuries.
