Woman says sex act caused car crash

Police said they arrested a man and woman who wrecked their vehicle and lied to police about who was driving.

Nitro police were called Saturday to the scene of a one-vehicle crash in the 1100 block of 1st Avenue. Officers saw a man running from the accident scene, according to a criminal complaint filed in Kanawha Magistrate Court.

Police chased the man and advised him to stop, the complaint says. He was eventually apprehended and found to be intoxicated, it says.

Police identified the man as Matthew Justin Clark, 29, of Park Avenue in Charleston.
Clark had no shirt on and his jeans were unzipped, partially exposing his underwear, the complaint says.

When the officer returned to the scene of the crash, he spoke with Katie Ann Stewart, 25, of Arthur Drive in Cross Lanes, the complaint said.

Stewart said she was the driver of the crashed vehicle, but witnesses who had gathered at the scene said they saw Clark behind the wheel, the complaint says.

Stewart was adamant about being the driver and told police, "It's not his fault."

The officer said Stewart also appeared to be intoxicated, failed three sobriety tests and was charged with DUI, according to the complaint. A test indicated her blood-alcohol level was .12.

After she was taken to the police station, Stewart asked what was going to happen to her, and when the penalties for DUI were explained, she immediately changed her story, the complaint says.

She told police she was performing oral sex on Clark as he was driving and that was why he crashed the car, the complaint says.

Clark, who also was at the station, told Stewart several times to "shut up," the complaint said.
The two were put together in a holding cell, where police witnessed Clark try several times to get Stewart to take the blame for the accident, according to the complaint.

Clark was given an Intoximeter test at the police station and registered a .211 blood-alcohol level, according to the complaint.

During a search, an officer also found a Viagra pill in his pocket, the complaint says. Clark was charged with DUI, possession of a controlled substance, obstructing and driving on a revoked license. The license had been revoked for drunken driving.

Stewart was charged with obstructing.
