Ocala, Florida — Ocala Police said on Wednesday, at approximately 11:10 p.m, Officer Casey Walsh discovered a crash that had just occurred at the intersection of Southwest 16th Avenue and State Road 200.
A black Chevrolet SUV had rear-ended a blue Buick sedan.
The driver of the SUV, later identified as convicted felon, Angel Nicole Oliver, 28, and the occupants of the Buick had been involved in a verbal altercation prior to the crash occurring.
Officer Walsh said that when she approached Oliver she could immediately smell alcohol. Officer Walsh called Officer William Joedicke to respond for a possible DUI investigation.
According to reports, Oliver’s speech was slow and “very slurred.”
While awaiting the arrival of Officer Joedicke, Officer Walsh observed Natural Ice beer in the front seat of her SUV and a small child sitting in a car seat in the back seat of Oliver’s vehicle.
When Officer Walsh asked Oliver if she had anyone else in the vehicle, Oliver reached behind the front seats and lifted up a second small child from the floorboard, where the child had landed when the car seat overturned during the crash.
The two children were found to be 18-month-old twins; neither were secured in their car seats nor were the car seats secured into the car.
During the investigation, it was also discovered that Oliver is currently pregnant.
Department of Children and Families was contacted in reference to the children. The father of the children responded to the scene and accompanied them to the hospital, where they were examined.
Oliver failed all roadside sobriety tests and was placed under arrest.
During the breathalyzer test, she blew a .236.
She was transported to the Marion County Jail and charged with DUI.
She is being held on $1,000 bond.
Oliver has previous arrests for Battery, Aggravated Battery (x2), Obstruction of Justice, and Violation of Probation.
