PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Pennsylvania lawmaker is facing charges that she left the scene of hit-and-run crash when she was driving a taxpayer-funded car with a suspended license.
State Police say on Thursday that Delaware County Rep. Margo Davidson rear-ended a car while driving on a highway in January and left the scene before police arrived.
Police and court documents say the 55-year-old Democrat also received a summary charge when her taxpayer-funded car hit another vehicle while she was pulling out of a driveway. Davidson disputes a police report that says she’s to blame and tells The Philadelphia Inquirer that she’s going to plead not guilty to that Feb. 2 accident.
Davidson says she paid a 2016 traffic ticket in Virginia that led to her license being suspended.
