PADUCAH, Ky. - A McCracken County woman faces a DUI charge after crashing into a business in downtown Paducah.

Paducah police say 43-year-old Sonya M. Chastain crashed into Jones Glass on Kentucky Avenue on Tuesday morning. Chastain's 1998 Nissan Frontier pickup truck crossed into oncoming traffic before running off the road and hitting the building.

After officers found two cans of compressed air inside the truck, Chastain told police she had been huffing the compressed air while driving. Chastain also told officers at the crash site she did not know what had happened.

The building sustained minor damage as a result of the crash. The city's building inspector was called to the scene.

Chastain was arrested on a DUI charge and booked into the McCracken County Regional Jail.
