An 18-year-old Brown-wood motorist told police she thought it was OK to leave the scene of an accident since she was the one who got hit.
Officer Chris Hill told Crystal Newingham that she was the one who was at fault because she ran a stop sign, Hillís report states.
Hill arrested Newingham on a charge of fleeing the scene of an accident after a two-vehicle collision Thursday morning at Second and Avenue H, Hillís report and Brown County Jail records state.
A 25-year-old woman told Hill she drove her 2007 Mercury Mariner through the intersection, and a car ran the stop sign, hit her vehicle and spun it 180 degrees.
The driver left the scene but called dispatch, saying she had hit a vehicle and left because she feared sheíd get in trouble, Hillís report states. A dispatcher learned that the caller was possibly in the 2800 block of Southside.
Officer Stephanie Morgan arrived before Hill did, and Hill heard a woman tell Morgan she had believed it was OK to leave the scene, Hillís report states.
In an unrelated incident, a woman told deputy John Fincher that another woman entered her home at an undisclosed address, took $53 from her purse and took her medication.
