Green Co. deputies arrested a Monroe woman for her alleged third OWI after a crash Wednesday evening.

That vehicle reportedly turned onto Highway KS and crashed into the ditch.

The driver, 51-year-old Karen Wirth, suffered injuries and was taken to the hospital.

She was later arrested for 3rd offense operating while under the influence and cited for failure to maintain control and operating a motor vehicle without insurance.
