BRUNSWICK — A Lisbon Falls woman faces charges including operating under the influence after a Thursday afternoon crash involving a Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Office cruiser.

Chanel Lynn Hoppe, 46, allegedly failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Industrial Parkway and Greenwood Road just before 2:30 p.m., when she drove her 1995 Jeep Cherokee into the path of the cruiser, which struck the Jeep on the driver’s side, Brunswick Police Lt. Todd Ridlon said Friday.

The driver of the cruiser, Deputy Matt Sharpe, was on his way to work, according to Chief Deputy Brett Strout of the sheriff’s office. Strout said he does not expect Sharpe to be out of work because of any injuries.

Hoppe was taken to Mid Coast Hospital by a Brunswick rescue crew after complaining of pain. She was issued summonses at the hospital for operating under the influence, sale and use of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and failing to stop at a stop sign.

She is scheduled to appear in West Bath District Court on Jan. 20, 2015.
