Squabble leads to single-vehicle crash
An argument between a driver and her passenger led to their vehicle crashing into the median at the 151/61 overpass at 12:38 p.m. last Saturday.
Police report that the 23-year-old woman and her male passenger were squabbling over whether or not the woman should let the man out of the car. While the woman says she does not remember why they initially began arguing, she refused to let the man out of the car. She said that this was because “he didn’t know where to go because he was from out of town.”
The man grew frustrated and yanked the steering wheel to the side while the car was traveling at a high rate of speed on the highway. He said that because he had never had a driver’s license or driven a vehicle that he did not realize that his actions would cause the car to crash.
Both the man and woman were transported to Finley Hospital and released with non-life threatening injuries. The woman, who suffered a broken ankle, has since filed charges against the man for being caused a serious injury by a vehicle.
Luckily the crash only involved one vehicle, and nobody else was injured. This is often not the case when negligent drivers get behind the wheel.
