— Two drivers involved in two separate crashes at the same location were charged with DWI Wednesday morning, state troopers said.

The crashes happened shortly after 3 a.m. on Interstate 40 East near I-540.

Investigators say two vehicles were involved in the initial wreck. The driver of the car that caused the wreck is Angelica Wright. She was charged with DWI, troopers said.

Another driver then hit Wright’s car. David Hodge was also charged with DWI. He was driving with a revoked license because of previous drunken driving incidents, troopers said.

Hodge tried to run away, but authorities caught him.
