Drugs cited in five-car crash

CASTILE — A Le Roy woman was high on “multiple” drugs when she crashed into two parked cars, which in turn were pushed into two other cars Friday on North Main Street, Wyoming County sheriff’s deputies said.

Lynn Scarpa, 25, was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado south when she drove off the road and sideswiped a car in front of the post office, Sgt. Colin Reagan said.

Scarpa then drove into a Ford work van, pushing the van into a Ford Fusion parked in front of Carney’s Market.

The Fusion then hit a Toyota RAV4.

The Ford Fusion was occupied and the driver was taken by ambulance to Wyoming County Community Hospital with minor injuries, Reagan said.

Tallman’s Garage arrived and towed two vehicles from the scene that were determined to be undrivable.

Scarpa had marijuana in her pants and scattered throughout her truck, Reagan said.

She “performed poorly” on field sobriety tests and was taken to the Sheriff’s Office.

Reagan said a drug recognition expert determined she was impaired “by multiple categories of drugs and unable to operate a vehicle safely.”

Scarpa was charged with driving while ability impaired by drugs, driving while ability impaired by a combined influence of drugs and moving from a lane unsafely.

She is to appear June 14 in Town Court.
