PRINCE GEORGE – Prince George Police have located and arrested the woman they say fled the scene of an accident involving a school bus, but not before stopping to remove the damaged bumper from her car.
Wednesday morning, the department confirmed the arrest of 26-year-old Cierra Brockwell of neighboring Sussex County in connection with a Monday afternoon crash along Prince George Drive and South Crater Road.
When officers arrived at the scene of the crash, they learned that a black Acura had struck the front bumper of a Prince George County school bus, with the driver then pulling over to the side of the road, removing the rear bumper from the car, which was hanging off the vehicle after the collision and took the license place off the then-detached bumper before fleeing the scene.
There were 25 students traveling on the school bus, ranging in grades from sixth to 12th, and no injuries were reported on scene.
Hours after the incident, police turned to the public for their assistance in finding the driver of the black Acura, with her arrest coming the following day.
According to authorities, Brockwell is charged with: failing to stop at the scene of an accident, driving on a suspended license, reckless driving – failure to yield right-of-way, disregarding a stop sign, and operating an uninsured motor vehicle.
She is being held at Riverside Regional Jail without bail.
