NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ — A city woman who allegedly crashed her car into a building this weekend and then fled the scene is facing several charges, according to police.
Shafeefah Robinson, 29, allegedly lost control of her blue Saturn at 5:32 a.m. July 22 and hit the structure at 51 Throop Ave., New Brunswick Police Capt. J.T. Miller told TAPinto New Brunswick. Robinson then allegedly drove away from the scene, cops said.
Shortly afterward, police found Robinson and her vehicle near 33 Commercial Ave., Miller said.
She has since been charged with careless driving, leaving the scene of an accident and driving an uninsured vehicle, according to police.
Miller didn’t know the status of the building, but he said city fire officials responded to inspect the damage.
This wasn’t related to a separate incident earlier that day in which a driver allegedly struck two men on Handy Street before fleeing the scene. The victims received treatment for minor injuries at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.
As TAPinto New Brunswick reported yesterday, police are still searching for a suspect in that case.
