BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boca Raton woman allegedly parked her running car in the middle of the intersection of Camino Real and NW 12th Avenue, then fell asleep. She was surprised, according to police when an officer and Boca Raton Fire Rescue woke her up.
According to a police report reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com, Elizabeth Toscanini was sound asleep and sitting behind the steering wheel of her running silver Toyota around 12:21 in the morning last Saturday. That’s when a Boca Raton police officer was suspicious that her car wasn’t moving. The officer moved his patrol car in front of Elizabeth Toscanini’s car to block it, then called for Boca Raton Fire Rescue.
Rescue workers placed blocks in front of the wheels, then made enough noise that Elizabeth woke up, rolled down the window, and apparently had no idea that she had fallen asleep.
“Elizabeth advised she was driving home from a friend’s house… While speaking with Elizabeth, I was able to smell the odor of alcohol emanating from her breath as well as her to have bloodshot and watery eyes. Elizabeth’s speech was slow and slurred.”
Toscanini, according to police, had issues completing several field sobriety tests. She was transported to a breath alcohol testing facility where she provided samples of .089 and .087, both just over the legal limit of .08. Toscanini was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and later released on her own recognizance. She is now facing a DUI charge.
