HUDSON - A 41-year-old Litchfield woman was charged with DWI after she crashed her car into a utility pole and a tree Friday night, police said.

Police said Catherine Locapo was driving east on Barretts Hill Road shortly after 10:30 p.m. when her Mercedes C300 left the road and hit a pole, breaking it in half. The vehicle then struck a tree, flipped onto its roof and came to rest in the middle of the road.

Police said Locapo was not wearing a seatbelt and was taken to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center for injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening.

She was charged with DWI, second offense. A court hearing is set for Nov. 2.

Barretts Hill Road was closed for several hours while utility crews repaired the pole, police said.
