A 20-year-old West Barnstable woman was charged with drunken driving Tuesday night after being involved in a crash that began when a man jumped in front of an oncoming vehicle, public safety officials said.
At about 9 p.m. Tuesday, Tara L. Tobin, 20, of 2239 Iyannough Road, was driving westbound on Route 28 when she crashed into the rear of a Dodge Dakota pickup truck that had stopped suddenly.
The driver of the Dodge stopped in an unsuccessful attempt to avoid hitting a 47-year-old Centerville man with emotional problems who purposely jumped in front of the vehicle, the police said. The 47-year-old was taken by Yarmouth rescue personnel to Cape Cod Hospital for treatment of injuries that were considered serious but not life-threatening, the police said.
The police charged Tobin with operating under the influence of alcohol and a minor traffic violation. She is scheduled to be arraigned in Barnstable District Court. Tobin told investigators that prior to the crash she had six or seven beers at a house in Dennis, the police said.

Apparently when they run out of Kennedys to bring in on DUI charges, the pickings are slim on Cape Cod. This charming young lady supposedly had "six or seven" beers. I'd hate to see what she looks like when she really gets bombed.
