Woman, 21, gets second OWI after crashing into Madison bank

MADISON (WKOW) — A Belleville, Wisconsin woman is facing OWI charges after she allegedly crashed her car into the UW Credit Union on University Avenue. 

A news release from the Shorewood Hills Police Department said it happened early Saturday morning just before 1:00 a.m. 

Police Chief Aaron Chapin says an officer was in the area on another call when he heard the crash. When a bystander told him that a car had hit the bank, the officer went to the location at 3750 University Avenue and saw where it was lodged into the front of the building. 

The driver, Holly Perkins, 21, was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Nobody else was in the car with her and no one was inside the building at the time of the crash. 

Perkins was arrested for her second OWI and operating a car after her license had been revoked.   

UW-Madison Police also helped with the investigation.
