A 21-year-old Wisconsin Rapids woman convicted of driving drunk and injuring three passengers will spend 120 days in jail and will have her license revoked for 18 months.

Investigators say Maci Siems was intoxicated when she crashed into telephone pole near the corner of 7th Street and Pepper Avenue in Wisconsin Rapids on August 29.

Officers responded to the crash just before 2 a.m.

According to court documents, a witness said the group had just left Johnny's Bar in Wisconsin Rapids.

Investigators say one passenger sustained a skull fracture, a broken cheek bone, possible punctured lung, two broken ankles and significant jaw and face injuries.

Siems was unconscious when police arrived, according to court documents.

According to the criminal complaint, a blood draw preformed at the hospital showed Siems had a blood alcohol concentration, or BAC of
.184; more than two times over the legal limit for driving.

Siems sentence is scheduled to begin February 9.

After her revocation, she'll have to have an interlock device for one year.
