A Hamilton Township woman is accused of driving with four times the legal limit of alcohol in her system following a crash just north of Port Hope on Thursday night.

Around 8:30 p.m., Northumberland OPP and paramedics responded to a two-vehicle collision on County Road 28 between Lakeview Lane and Rice Lake Drive North near the entrance to the community of Bewdley, about 15 kilometres north of Port Hope.
