A husband and wife were jailed Sunday on charges of drunken driving after leaving the scene of an accident.

Kimberly Jo Kershaw, 33, appeared Monday in Scotts Bluff County Court; however, her husband, Jeremiah Kershaw, 35, appeared to have bonded out of jail. Kimberly Kershaw has been charged with driving under the influence with a blood-alcohol content over .15, second offense, and leaving the scene of an accident.

Jeremiah Kershaw, who has not been formally charged, had been arrested on charges of driving under the influence, third offense; refusal to submit to chemical tests and refusal to submit to a preliminary breath test; possession of an open container and seat belt violation.
According to court documents in both cases, the Nebraska State Patrol and Scotts Bluff County Sheriff’s Office were called to a hit and run accident on county road 15 at about 10 p.m. Sunday. A responding trooper found that a driver had struck a fence post and left the scene of the accident. A Nebraska state Patrol trooper stopped a Chevy vehicle in the area of the accident with a broken headlight and damage to its grill.
Kimberly Kershaw admitted she had been driving the vehicle, but that she had switched places with Jeremiah Kershaw. Jeremiah Kershaw left the scene of the accident and had been driving at the time that the trooper pulled the vehicle over.
The trooper found an open beer can in a cup holder of the vehicle. Both Kimberly Kershaw and Jeremiah Kershaw were arrested and jailed at the Scotts Bluff County Detention Center. Jeremiah Kershaw posted bond on Monday and did not appear in court.
