STONINGTON — An Ashaway woman is facing charges after police said she struck a parked car Tuesday on Morton Avenue in Pawcatuck. The woman, Judith A. Higgins, 52, of 94 Chase Hill Road, was charged Wednesday with driving under the influence and failure to drive to the right. She was released on a promise to appear in New London Superior Court.

According to a Stonington police report, officers were called to the scene of the crash around 1:15 p.m. There was minor damage to both vehicles, the police said, and no injuries. Higgins showed signs of intoxication and was given a field sobriety test, which she failed, the report said.
