A Dawsonville woman has been charged with driving under the influence after authorities say she crashed into a brick sign, overturned and came to rest against a tree in downtown Dawsonville Saturday afternoon.

Tammy Kramer, 51, was taken by ambulance to Northeast Georgia Medical Center with nonlife-threatening injuries, according to Georgia State Patrol spokeswoman Robin Stone.

"She admitted driving, but did not remember the crash," Stone said.

While the trooper's report was incomplete, Stone did say Kramer has been charged with DUI, with additional charges possible.

"All four tires were worn and did not have sufficient tread to be legal," she said.

Kramer was attempting to negotiate a turn on Hwy. 9 South just after 3 p.m. when she ran onto the shoulder of the road and vaulted over a sign leading to Dan Roper Lane.

Stone said the 2001 Dodge Dakota Kramer was driving landed with its front end, "nose first" in the ground, before overturning and coming to a rest "upside down with the front of the vehicle in the air against a tree."

As of Tuesday, she had not been booked on the charge, according to jail records.
