CHRISTIANA, TN - A driver suspected of drinking suffered injuries after she apparently crashed her car into a neighbor’s garage, causing extensive damage to the house, a Rutherford County Sheriff’s corporal said. Sheriff’s deputies, Emergency Medical Services paramedics and Rutherford County Fire Rescue firefighters responded this past Thursday to the Augusta Drive home in Christiana, said Cpl. William Travis.


“The investigation showed that Christy Graves drove her vehicle into a house in the Lewis Downs subdivision,” Travis said. “Deputies on the scene located open bottles of liquor in the vehicle.”

Graves struck a car parked inside the garage, he said. No one was home.

Because she had to be treated at the hospital, Travis did not arrest Graves but cited her for DUI, failing to exercise due care and driving with an open container.

According to the Sheriff's Office, the suspects court date is set for November 27, 2023 in General Sessions Court.
