The former immigration lawyer plowed into five pedestrians in Fort Pierce while driving with a suspended license, according to Florida Highway Patrol officials.
“I wasn’t driving. I wasn’t drinking,” the 34-year old woman, laughably told police shortly before blowing a .185, which is more than double the legal limit.
The woman allegedly rear-ended a car heading West on 34th Street near Fort Pierce . She was driving a rented silver Mustang.
When the victim tried to approach, the 34-year old driver made a U-turn, heading East on the packed street and weaving in and out of traffic, colliding with two more cars.
She then mounted the busy sidewalk, mowing down a crowd of horrified pedestrians before crashing into a storefront.
Five pedestrians were injured including a 14-year-old girl.
Florida Highway Patrol officials found two crack pipes in her car and stolen merchandise, prosecutors said.
Florida Highway Patrol officials had made it known that the incident is still being investigated.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a vehicle which plowed into a crowd of people, which ultimately, resulted in injuries to five pedestrians. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck.
