DUI ATV crash

A Rome woman faces two misdemeanor DUI charges and a number of summary violations following an ATV accident in early June that left her unconscious.

According to Pennsylvania State Police, 50-year-old Cindy Lee Coleman has been riding ATVs with another person and stopped at a neighbor’s house. She ended up leaving the other rider to head back to the house, but police said she was traveling too fast for what she could handle and wrecked while turning from Woodland Lake Road onto Son Jones Road in Pike Township.

Police said she was unconscious and was being treated inside an ambulance when they arrived on scene. They also smelled alcohol on her. The other rider, who had found her and rolled the ATV off of her before going to a neighbor’s home to call 911, admitted they had two or three beers before heading out on the ATVs. Police noted that Coleman’s BAC was 0.161%.

The summary violations that Coleman faces stem from driving the ATV without registration or insurance, not driving at a safe speed, operating the ATV on a road not posted for ATV use, and carelessly operating the vehicle.

She was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Fred Wheaton on July 29. A preliminary hearing is scheduled before Magisterial District Judge Todd Carr on Sept. 13.
