The driver of the Forester refused medical attention at the scene, however, Tedeschi was rushed to Hartford Hospital for "minor injuries," police said.

Police said Tedeschi did not perform the Field Sobriety Test to standard.

Tedeschi is being held on $500 bond. She will be arraigned in New Britain Superior Court on Nov. 15.
