An Oregon coast woman was arrested for drunk driving after she rolled her station wagon in Prineville Saturday afternoon, claiming she was distracted when a puppy jumped into her lap, Crook County Sheriff’s deputies said.

44-year old Mona Lisa Seeling of Netarts, Oregon and her passenger were not injured in the accident that occurred about 4:30 p.m. near the intersection of Combs Flat Road and Carey Foster Road, Sgt. Jim Chapman reported.

Seeling told deputies she was traveling south on Combs Flat Road in a 1986 Subaru wagon when she lost control after her puppy jumped into her lap, causing her vehicle to slide, roll over, and land on its top.

Deputies investigating the crash took Seeling into custody for suspicion of driving under the influence of intoxicants, and she was lodged in the Crook County Jail.
