Baxter County Woman Arrested After Injuring Teens With Vehicle While Intoxicated


NORFOLK, Ark. – A Norfolk, Arkansas woman was arrested Thursday following an incident in November 2018, during which the woman injured two teens while driving under the influence of drugs.

Carol Boviall, 57, was arrested on multiple charges after test results revealed that Boviall was under the influence of methamphetamines when she drove a vehicle and injured two teens waiting at a bus stop.

Boviall had been in an argument at a home near the intersection of Third Street and Main Street in Norfolk, Arkansas before the incident occurred on Nov. 18, 2018.

Boviall left the home in a vehicle and as she was backing out onto Main Street struck the two teens, a 15-year-old male and a 13-year-old female. Both teens required emergency medical care, according to the release.

According to the release, the vehicle traveled almost 53 feet before striking the teens.

A third child then ran up to the window of Boviall’s vehicle to tell her to drive forward off of the teens pinned under the car.

Baxter County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the event after receiving a call at 7:26 a.m. that morning. Boviall consented to a blood draw for a drug test requested by the deputies.

The results of the test, which came back several weeks later, showed Boviall was under the influence of methamphetamines during the incident.

Boviall faces two felony counts of first-degree battery, a misdemeanor count of driving while intoxicated and a violation of careless and prohibited driving.
