Just sifting through this week’s police report from Highland Park DPS, and the write up for Friday’s major accident on Mockingbird Lane caught my eye. The driver of a Lexus RX300 collided with several trees and bushes between the 3400 and 3500 blocks of Mockingbird Lane. She was taken to Parkland Hospital, where she gave her version of events:
“I was stopped at the light (Mockingbird at Hillcrest) and went to accelerate. The car took off really, really fast in the blink of an eye. I did what they told me to do. I tried to put the car in neutral and it wouldn’t stop. THe motor was racing and I hit a tree.”
Police officers said that the driver didn’t show signs of alcohol consumption or intoxication at the scene.
