The open door

I know it's probably not easy to keep your shit together when you're driving drunk and you've had a car accident, but still, you might not want to leave quite so much evidence behind:
A car door and a stack of personal papers left behind at an accident scene helped authorities in Morris County track down an alleged drunk driver. Boonton police said a 20-year-old woman struck a utility pole at about 4:30 a.m. Sunday, then drove off.

Officers then responded to the scene and found the door of a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier and several papers bearing the woman's name and address.
A short time later, apparently, cops in a nearby town found an intoxicated woman in a Chevy Cavalier that was missing a door, crashed into a stone wall. Gee, I wonder, was she the same person?
The woman, who was treated at an area hospital for minor injuries, faces charges of drunken driving, underage drunken driving and numerous motor vehicle violations.
I guess so.
