RADNOR, Pa. (CBS) — Authorities in Montgomery County say the car involved in a crash on Halloween morning that injured two high school students waiting for their school bus should have never been on the road that day. And now the driver is facing charges.
Radnor police say the ten-year-old Nissan sedan had worn tires and a horn that didn’t work when the driver, identified as Tanisha Johnson, 34, of Philadelphia, lost control that morning on Conestoga Road in Radnor and struck the teens before the car came to rest against a house (see previous story).
Johnson is now charged with two misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment and several motor vehicle code violations.
“It’s unconscionable and inexcusable that anyone would operate a vehicle — whether it be Radnor Township or anywhere in the United States — in this kind of condition,” said police superintendent Bill Colarulo this morning.
He says the car had a valid inspection sticker but they’re not sure whether it was issued for that car. That investigation continues.
One of the students remains hospitalized but is said to be improving (see related story).
