Bieniewicz, 40, is in jail on a 75,000 bond. Police say she smelled of alcohol just after the crash.

The 40-year-old driver plowed into another car, a 2005 Audi, head-on with Ossowski from Shelby Township inside.
"You almost feel, you feel helpless," said Lt. Jeff Daniel, Shelby Twp. police to FOX 2 at the time. "You'd like to help, that's why all of us first responders get into this line of work to try and do something and make a difference.
They rendered whatever aid they could. I notified our fire dispatch that they will need their equipment for extraction.
"Somebody decided to have too much to drink and decided to drive. It doesn't make any sense whatsoever."
