WESTPORT, Conn. — A Westport woman was arrested Jan. 5 after she left the scene of an accident and then resisted arrest, police said.
Victoria Lieber, 44, of Cranbury Road, was charged with evading responsibility, restricted turn and interfering with an officer, police said.
Around 4:15 p.m., officers were dispatched to the intersection of Wilton Road and Newtown Turnpike on a report of a head-on motor vehicle collision with injuries.
While the officers were assisting the injured victims inside one vehicle, the other vehicle left the area, police said.
The victims were able to provide the license plate of the suspect vehicle, which had reportedly turned left in front of the victims’ vehicle, causing the crash.
Officers responded to LIeber’s home and identified her as the driver of the suspect vehicle.
Lieber resisted being handcuffed when officers were attempting to take her into custody, police said.
Once at police headquarters, Lieber continued to be uncooperative throughout the booking process, police said.
She was released on a promise to appear in court on Jan. 18.
