An arrest warrant has been issued for a Massachusetts woman who allegedly crashed head-on into another vehicle while drunk on Sunday evening.
Cohasset police say 53-year-old Scituate resident Laura Farrell is facing charges including OUI, negligent operation of a motor vehicle and failure to drive in marked lanes.
Farrell failed to appear in court Tuesday and a warrant was issued for her arrest.

Police say they responded to the scene of the crash at 130 King St. around 5 p.m.
Police allege Farrell veered into the opposite lane in her 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee and crashed into a 2011 Ford Taurus driven by a 69-year-old Brookline woman. That woman sustained serious, but non-life-threatening injuries, and was taken to South Shore Hospital.
Another vehicle, a 2015 Ford Edge operated by a 42-year-old Madison male, was also damaged in the crash after the driver swerved to avoid Farrell.
Police say a cell phone video filmed by a teenager in the car behind Farrell’s showed that Farrell was swerving in and out of lanes before the crash.
It’s not clear if Farrell has an attorney.
