Police: Fast food reach caused car crash

Updated:

WESTFIELD, Mass. (AP) - State police say a Massachusetts teenager was reaching into a bag of fast food on her lap when her car collided with a trooper's cruiser over the weekend.           

Authorities allege a car driven by 18-year-old Tia Grover, of Westfield, went through a flashing red light at about 12:30 a.m. Sunday just before she was struck by the cruiser driven by Trooper Daniel Moran, who had a flashing yellow light.           

A state police spokesman tells The Republican that evidence suggests Grover was eating from a McDonald's bag. Police say she told investigators that she doesn't remember how the accident occurred.           

Grover has been cited for failure to yield to a traffic signal, failure to wear a seat belt, and impeded operation of a motor vehicle for having food in her lap.
