NORTHFIELD — A local woman was charged with multiple violations including leaving the scene of an accident, driving with a suspended license, and negligent operation after a crash on Route 64 that shut down the road for hours on Jan. 30.

According to police, Taylor Crowningshield, 26, of Northfield, struck a guardrail around 2:50 p.m., then crossed into oncoming traffic and collided with another vehicle, causing it to be totaled.

Following the collision, Crowningshield reportedly left the scene on foot without rendering aid to the occupants of the other vehicle, which included a disabled individual.

Crowningshield was later found after getting a ride from an acquaintance.

Crowningshield is scheduled to appear in Washington Superior Court – Criminal Division on March 21 to face the charges stemming from the incident.
