State police said Wednesday that a Bellefonte woman will face a DUI charge after she crashed and flipped her car late in the evening on Christmas.

Police said that Joyce Shay, 59, was driving on Buffalo Run Road in Benner Township when she lost control of her 2010 Honda Fit while going around a left curve. Shay’s car slid and hit an embankment, and then it flipped onto the passenger side, police said.

The investigation revealed Shay was driving drunk, police said.

The charges will be filed through the office of District Judge Kelley Gillette-Walker.
