DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) – Daytona Beach police say a woman crashed through the infield of the Daytona International Speedway, hitting six cars and injuring four people.

Police officers say 43-year-old Abbie Kinney failed her sobriety tests after the accident early Saturday.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal (http://bit.ly/1L8xeID) reports that Kinney faces nine charges of damaging persons or property while driving under the influence. She also faces a charge of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

A police report says she told officers that she shouldn’t have been driving because she had been drinking.

The area of the infield where the crash took place is popular for camping fans during the Daytona 500 and other motor sport events at the speedway.

Court records didn’t indicate if she had an attorney.
