BLOOMINGTON — A 24-year-old Normal woman faces charges stemming from a Thursday morning crash that destroyed a shed and other property in the 1600 block of Oakland Avenue in Bloomington.

Victoria Hodges was initially arrested on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, driving with a suspended license, and fleeing/attempting to elude. Formal charges are pending.

Police said at 1:30 a.m. Thursday, a McLean County sheriff’s deputy attempted to stop Hodges for a moving violation. Police said she fled, with the vehicle hitting a utility pole and a shed before coming to a stop on a property on Oakland Avenue.

Paramedics were called to the scene, but information about whether Hodges was injured was not available on Monday, or if she had any passengers with her.

According to McLean County court documents, Hodges pleaded guilty to DUI last year and was sentenced to 24 months supervision and 100 hours of community service.
