BRIEF: Erie accident follows harassment call
Feb 27, 2013 (Erie Times-News - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
An accident that sent one woman to the hospital and damaged several cars followed a call to police reporting alleged harassment.
Erie police were called to a home in the 1100 block of West 21st Street at about 10 p.m. Monday by people who said they were being harassed by a woman repeatedly driving past, Lt. Kirk Werner said.
The woman, driving a blue Ford Explorer, was calling and threatening the people inside the home as she drove, Werner said.
"She claimed she was going to crash the vehicle into the house," he said.
When police arrived in the area, the woman drove off at a high rate of speed. She drove in a loop around the block before striking five or six cars along West 21st Street.
The car rolled several times through the intersection of West 21st and Cranberry streets. The woman, who was not identified by police, was ejected from the sport utility vehicle into the intersection.
The woman was transported to UPMC Hamot. Her condition was not available Tuesday.
No one else was in the SUV at the time of the accident and no one else was injured, Werner said. The incident remains under investigation.
