WILMINGTON — Police say a drunken driver critically injured a woman who was walking her dog Friday night.

Deputy Chief Rick Juster said around 7 p.m. witnesses saw a black Ford Bronco swerving in the 1200 block of Sunset Drive before it struck a 58-year-old woman who was walking her dog on the side of the road.

The victim, a Wilmington resident, was hospitalized and later airlifted to a trauma center with “life-threatening injuries.” Police did not have an update on her condition Monday.

Andrew J. Peterson, 24, of 1755 Vista Drive was arrested and booked into the county jail on charges of aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol and failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident.

The lady’s name is Beth. It did happen Friday night and she has lived in Wilmington for at least 7 years that I know of maybe more. She is still in pretty bad shape but with hopes that she will pull through this. Please keep prayers going out for her and her family.

Hi Julia and everyone praying for my sister Beth! She is doing great now out of the hospital but rehabing 3 times a week. She is strong and has persevered to be where she is today. Praise the Lord and all who have prayed for her.
