When officers tried to drive her car to the side of the road, she refused to allow them to do so and she berated the male driver who was involved in the accident even though eyewitnesses said that she caused the crash.

A minor accident on Cross Bay Boulevard on Monday afternoon drew more than the usual attention for a number of reasons. The first was that the accident took place directly in front of the Hillebrand Funeral Home, and many members of the Broad Channel Volunteer Fire Department were at home to pay their respects to their Assistant Chief, who had recently lost his brother.

Secondly, the unidentified woman involved in the accident, who many eyewitnesses say was responsible for the crash, loudly berated the man who was driving the other vehicle.

According to eyewitnesses, the woman refused to allow police officers to drive her car to the side of the road to reopen it to motorists.

"Even though she had broken something in her foot or ankle, she pushed the cops aside and drove the car herself," one eyewitness told The Wave.
