Cary woman charged with DUI in single-vehicle crash

WOODSTOCK – A 29-year-old Cary woman was charged with driving under the influence, after she veered her car off the roadway Monday and crashed into a culvert in unincorporated Woodstock.

Andrea M. Kief, 7392 Cove Dr., Cary, was also charged with failure to reduce speed, marijuana possession, drug paraphernalia possession and endangering the life of a child, according to a McHenry County Sheriff news release. A male juvenile was a passenger in the car.

Police responded at 2:40 p.m. to a report of a single-vehicle crash at the 4600 block of Dean Street. Investigators found that Kief's black 2008 Mazda veered from the southbound lane on Dean Street, north of Route 176, to the northbound lane and entered a ditch.

The vehicle then struck a culvert, overturned and hit a tree, police said. The juvenile was taken to Centegra Hospital – Woodstock as a precaution. Kief did not seek medical attention, police said.
