Woman Charged with DUI in Causeway Crash

CLEARWATER (970 WFLA) -- A Clearwater woman goes to jail after a crash that shut down the Courtney Campbell Causeway Thursday morning.

The van flew into a guardrail and flipped over. The driver, 52-year-old Gregory Palmer, is in critical condition at Bayfront. 

Paige is also accused of battery on a law enforcement officer. The crash shut down the westbound side of the causeway for more than five hours.
