A woman is facing impaired driving charges after plowing through a picnic area and into a parked car over the Thanksgiving weekend.

Authorities were called to a park on Queen Street in Tilbury just before 6:30 Saturday evening.

The accused was arrested and taken to police headquarters for breath tests, which showed she had three times the legal limit of alcohol in her system.

The 54-year-old was charged and released with a future court date.
