A Billings woman has been accused of crashing into a house and driving off and then hitting a car in a second hit-and-run crash.

Misty Dawn Debuff, 23, has been charged with felony criminal endangerment and misdemeanor counts of DUI and driving without a valid license.

Debuff is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in District Court. She was released from the county jail after posting a $9,500 bond.

According to court records, Debuff was arrested Feb. 9 after two hit-and-run crashes.

The first crash happened when a red Ford pickup drove through a fence and hit a house near the intersection of Washington Street and Roosevelt Avenue.

A witness said the female driver backed out of the yard and drove away.

A few minutes later, a second hit-and-run crash involving a red Ford pickup and a car happened near Eighth Street West and Central Avenue. The driver of the truck again drove off, but an officer located the vehicle parked outside a residence on Florine Lane.

An officer said the truck had front-end damage, including a piece of wood sticking out of the front license plate. The driver, Debuff, showed signs of intoxication, and a breath test showed the woman had a blood-alcohol level of 0.121 percent, court records state.
