Police: Carlisle mother high on meth in July crash
CARLISLE, Pa. – On Wednesday July 5th, around 3:15 am, officers responded to a crash at the intersection of N. Orange Street and Newville Road. Officers discovered a SUV heavily damaged and unoccupied in the parking lot of the Dickinson College Facilities Building.
It was determined through the accident investigation that this vehicle was traveling east bound on Newville Road, when the driver failed to stop at this intersection and continued straight through over a sidewalk, up and over a large embankment, and collided with the Facilities Building approximately 100 feet off the roadway.
The driver of the SUV, Megan Lebeau, was found at a near by apartment complex. Lebeau also had her three small children as passengers at the time of the crash. She and her children were transported to Carlisle Hospital.
Lebeau was exhibiting behavior at the scene that suggested she was under the influence of a controlled substance. A search warrant was later served to obtain lab records from the hospital, which determined that Lebeau was under the influence of methamphetamine at the time of the crash.
Lebeau will be summoned to court to answer to the above listed offenses.
