A woman who drove her car into a ditch Wednesday morning at the 800 block of 90th in Vero Beach was seen walking on I-95, according to the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies found the woman, identified as Kimberly Ann Aikey, 31, walking on the interstate at approximately 4:00 a.m., the affidavit said.

“Aikey was covered in mud and had a small laceration to her left knee and small lacerations to the back of her arms,” a deputy said.

Aikey was upset and difficult to understand. She said her vehicle, a Lexus, was “somewhere” in a ditch. Aikey also thought she was on CR-512 in Sebastian, according to the affidavit.

Deputies searched the area and found her vehicle in a ditch at the 800 block of 90th Avenue. Deputies said the car damaged a culvert pipe and two street signs.

Aikey said she was going home from a friends house in Gifford.

“Aikey advised she was driving her vehicle at the time of the crash and that nobody else was in the vehicle with her,” the deputy said.

Aikey was arrested and charged with Leaving a Scene of an Accident with Property Damage. She was released after posting $500 bond.
