November 5, 2018

A woman who fled the scene of a rollover crash on First Street Oct. 21 was charged Nov. 2.

The Bethany Beach woman, 30, turned herself in to police and she was charged. She faces several misdemeanor charges including leaving the scene of a property damage collision, reckless driving and driving with an expired license, said Lt. Jaime Riddle of the Rehoboth Beach Police Department. The Cape Gazette does not release names of people charged with misdemeanor offenses.

The crash happened at 9:30 p.m. on North First Street near Nicola Pizza when a 2008 Toyota RAV4 with Delaware registration was driving southbound on First Street and struck a legally parked gray 2018 Mercedes CLA 250 with New Jersey tags.

The front passenger side of the Toyota struck the rear driver side of the Mercedes, causing the Toyota to roll onto its driver side where it came to rest, Riddle said.

Riddle said the woman was helped out of the Toyota, and then fled the scene on foot. 

Both vehicles were inoperable and were towed from the scene. No one was injured in the crash, Riddle said.
