Tracy McCracken, 32, was driving down Paragon Mills Road around 6 p.m. when police say she swerved into the opposite lane of traffic and struck another vehicle.

The affidavit reads that they took McCracken into custody for driving under the influence.

She has been charged with driving on a revoked license, implied criminal consent and vehicular assault. She is booked at the Davidson County jail on a $53,500 bond.
