BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Police say a woman who crashed her car in Bennington, Vt., while texting tried to blame the accident on her estranged husband.
Tanya Taylor, 30, pleaded not guilty to a felony count of impeding a public office and misdemeanor counts of false information to a police officer. She also pleaded not guilty to careless or negligent operation of a vehicle and leaving the scene of a crash with property damage.
The Bennington Banner reports police responded to a crash on Feb. 25. The car had a shattered windshield, tire damage, and the shape of what appeared to be a yellow highway sign on the hood. Taylor said her estranged husband had vandalized her car after the two argued.
She eventually said she crashed the car into a sign.
