Women charged in parking lot wreck

HALFWAY - Two Hagerstown-area women were arrested in connection with an accident and subsequent run-in with authorities in a Valley Mall parking lot, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Department.

Jessica N. Edwards, 21, of 21126 Leitersburg Pike, and Sharina R. McQueen, 19, of 1016 W. Irvin Ave., were charged with disorderly conduct and hindering/obstructing, said Sgt. Timothy Baker. Baker said Edwards also was charged with driving under the influence, negligent driving and driving while revoked.

Deputies were dispatched to Valley Mall just after 2:30 p.m. following reports of a vehicle collision. Deputies alleged that a van driven by Edwards struck a parked vehicle, which struck three more vehicles.

No injuries were reported in the wreck, Baker said.

Deputies allege McQueen falsely claimed to be the driver when questioned.

Washington County District Court Commissioner Cheryl Titus said she set bond for Edwards at $10,000 and bond for McQueen at $5,000 late Monday.

Authorities had not transported them to the Washington County Detention Center by 10:30 p.m., a detention center spokesman said.
