A KU student was issued a citation Monday night for her involvement in a car accident that forced a local business to close.
According to Lawrece police Sgt. Damon Thomas, officers received a call from someone who said they thought they knew the owner of the vehicle that ran into Louise’s West, 1307 West Seventh St. early Sunday morning.
Thomas said the owner had tried to report the vehicle stolen, but an investigation into the claim revealed it was not.
Police identified the driver in the incident as Brandy Fausnaught, 22, Lawrence. The woman had been driving her friend’s car, a silver SUV, early Sunday morning when the accident occurred.
Thomas said the woman was not arrested, but was issued a citation about 9:05 p.m. Monday for leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving, driving with a revoked or suspended license and failure to report an accident.
