A woman driving a white SUV allegedly struck five parked vehicles in the 600 block of 2nd Street. Upon further investigation, it appears she allegedly struck four other cars just before that in the area of George St., and Beach Street.

Charges are likely to be filed Friday. Police believe alcohol was involved. The driver is being held in the Wood River Jail pending formal charges.
