EDH woman arrested following crash

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — Police arrested a 59-year-old El Dorado Hills woman on suspicion of driving under the influence Tuesday afternoon after she allegedly hit a van and caused it to flip on its side.

Sharon Nolan-Maloff was allegedly pulling out of Grocery Outlet onto U.S. Highway 50 in a white 2012 Range Rover about 2:45 p.m. when she struck the rear of an eastbound white Ford van, causing it to skid and land on its driver side door.

The van came to rest near the tree just in front of the grocery store. The front window was broken and the roof was badly dented. Two ladders, as well as hand tools were scattered near the van, which had a Winter’s Electric logo on the back door.

“I heard the bang, saw the dust and saw him roll over into the tree,” said Ryan Schouten, a South Lake Tahoe resident who was working outside at Grocery Outlet at the time. “There were people out here helping him right away.”

No injuries were reported from the crash, said Lt. David Stevenson.

After hitting the van, Nolan-Maloff reversed back into the parking lot of the store, where she struck the vehicle of a witness to the crash, causing minor damage, Stevenson said.

Nolan-Maloof allegedly showed signs of being under the influence and was booked into El Dorado County Jail in South Lake Tahoe on Tuesday afternoon. It is unknown if she has an attorney.
