State Police arrested a Lowell woman late Monday morning after a single-car vehicle crash on William T. Morrissey Boulevard.

Sara Fogarty, 27, allegedly crashed a 2014 Lexus sedan near the intersection of Morrissey Boulevard and Tolman Street around 11 a.m., State Police said. She then fled the scene on foot.

Police arrested her behind a nearby residence. She was not injured in the crash.

According to officials, Fogarty had a small amount of heroin on her person, a suspended driver’s license, and an outstanding warrant. She was charged with possession of a Class A substance, operating after license suspension, and with the warrant, police said. Fogarty had a pending court date on a charge of operating a vehicle on a suspended license from May.

She was arraigned in Dorchester District Court on Monday afternoon, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office, held on $250 bail and ordered to return to court on Dec. 1 for the earlier charge.
