CHAUMONT — A Chaumont woman faces a driving while intoxicated charge following a crash in which her vehicle exceeded 100 mph before hitting a tree shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday on County Route 8, near Route 12E in the town of Lyme, state police said.

Brenda S. Jacobs, 50, of 32886 Old Town Springs Road, refused to stop for a trooper before the accident occurred, state police said.

Her southbound vehicle crossed the other lane near a curve, left the road and ended up hitting a tree, troopers said.

She was flown to Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, where she was listed in fair condition Monday morning.

She was charged with third-degree fleeing an officer and DWI.
