A 24-year-old Morris woman who drove her vehicle into a house recently pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor DUI charge. 

The Morris Police Department said two witnesses saw a vehicle driven by Keegan Kenney disobey the stop sign at West Jackson Street and Nettle Street and crashed into the house at speeds over 60 miles per hour in May of 2018.

Morris Fire Deputy Chief Bob Wills said it took 20 minutes to extricate Kenney from the vehicle. She was transported to Morris Hospital and later transferred to another hospital.

No other injuries were reported and Kenney has since been released. Kenney was arrested on five counts of DUI, disobeying a stop sign, failing to yield to avoid an accident, operating a vehicle without insurance and a seat belt.

Last week, Kenney pled guilty to DUI with a blood alcohol concentration level over .08, which is a misdemeanor. She will be sentenced by Grundy County Judge Sheldon Sobol during a sentencing hearing on September 17th
