Police responded to a strange series of events yesterday at an accident in Bee Spring that resulted in three damaged vehicles and a demolished sign, apparently due a driver not feeling well from a dental appointment.
Police said Tanya Winburn, 33, Brownsville, was traveling south on 259 when she veered off the road in a 1999 Dodge Intrepid and struck the front of a 2012 Toyota Camry, driven by Michael Saling, 35, Bee Spring, who was preparing to turn on 259 from Cedar Grove Church Road.
Police said that according to Saling, Winburn exchanged insurance and personal information with Saling and left the scene because she wasn't feeling well.
Reports also showed that only a half mile down the road, Winburn's vehicle once again left the highway, this time, crashing into the display sign for Beach House Work Out and Tanning Center. Police said Winburn continued on, entering the parking lot of Jones and Gravil Tax Service, where her car finally came to rest after crashing into a parked car, owned by Anna Martin, 22.
Police reported that Winburn said she was returning from a dental appointment where she had six teeth removed. Multiple field sobriety tests were given, but police reported that no clues of intoxication were given at the scene.
No charges were filed and no injuries were reported. KSP also responded to the scene.
