LEAVING THE SCENE
A woman involved in a multi-car accident told police she needed to get home when confronted by police for leaving the scene of the accident.
Suzanne Lewis, 66, of 2017 N. 73rd Court, was arrested at 10:55 p.m. Nov. 1 on 2000 block of 73rd Court and charged with leaving the scene of an accident, failure to yield at a left turn and failure to give information and render aid.
According to police reports, prior to her arrest, Lewis was driving eastbound on North Avenue and attempted to make a left turn onto 78th Avenue, which led to her car being involved in an accident with two other vehicles.
Despite her car being damaged, she continued driving, but a taxi driver who witnessed the accident chose to follow her, call police and tell them where Lewis was going. When Lewis was pulled over by police, the cab driver pointed out Lewis to them who, according to police reports, was in the process of walking away from her vehicle.
According to police reports, when police asked Lewis if the car she was driving was hers, she replied “yes.” When police asked her if she was involved in the accident at 78th Avenue and North Avenue she said “yes.”
According to police reports, when police asked her why she left the scene of the accident, Lewis told police that the other car hit her and felt it was the other person’s fault and that her car was still drivable and wanted to get home.
Her court date is Dec. 13.
