Reckless driving can lead to a range of chargeable offenses, from minor fender benders, hit-and-run or even tragic fatal accidents -- drivers have a lot of responsibilities while driving on the road. Recently, a resident of Palm Beach, Florida had to face her share of motor vehicle related charges. The 65-year-old woman was already in jail for hitting a bicyclist when she was charged with another reckless driving offense -- misdemeanor hit-and-run. Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office charged the woman with DUI and causing serious bodily injury to another, as well as DUI and damaging property.
Apparently, the woman was implicated in another case by Palm Beach's Telecommunications Unit after it received information from a witness about a vehicle that hit a large trash bin, which rolled into a parked BMW. The supposed witness gave police a tag number which matched the suspect vehicle in another sheriff's office case involving a 65-year-old man who had been hit while riding his bicycle.
