WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Wilmington woman is charged with DWI and texting while driving after highway patrol said she accidentally ran her car into three parked cars early Tuesday morning.
Highway patrol said 22-year-old Sara Mae Scribner was driving her car through the Cape Harbor Apartments complex off of Market Street and Gordon Road when she looked down at a text and then crashed into the cars around 1 a.m.
Witnesses said right after the accident, Scribner got out of her car and went into a friend’s apartment. When troopers arrived, they had to go find her.
Troopers said her car is totaled. They think two of the three that were hit are losses as well due to their age.
Scribner makes her first appearance in court Jan. 15.
