CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Troopers say a woman is undergoing a mental evaluation after she repeatedly crashed into the weigh station on Interstate 85.

The incidents were reported at 4:05 a.m. Monday morning at the northbound weigh station on Interstate 85 at the Gaston-Mecklenburg county line, according to the NC Highway Patrol.

Troopers and officers from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department arrived on scene to find a 26-year-old female had repeatedly driven her car into the station building.

She appeared to be suffering from a mental breakdown and seemed extremely incoherent and was combative at times, troopers say.

Drugs and alcohol are not suspected, troopers say.

The woman was taken to Carolinas Medical Center for a mental evaluation and possible commitment.

The woman was cited for reckless driving and damage to property.
