TAMPA — On her way home from a bar, a Tampa woman left the scene of a car crash and then drove her car into a home Friday night, authorities reported.

The incident marks the third time Danica Eleen Zagara, 52, of Tampa, has been charged with driving under the influence. She was also charged with driving under the influence with property damage in Friday's crash.

Hillsborough County Sheriff's Deputies received a call about 8 p.m. Friday that Zagara had driven her blue 2002 Dodge Intrepid into a living room at 12015 N Oregon Ave. in the neighborhood of North Forest Hills. The resident was not home.

Deputies administered first aid to Zagara and spoke with a witness, who said he had followed her after she left the scene of a hit and run crash at Fowler and Florida avenues.

Zagara, of 504 El Sereno Place, told deputies she had just left Copper Top Pub and was on her way home. She was released from Orient Road Jail on Saturday on $2,250 bond.
