Felony Charges for Broome Mom in Crash That Injured Daughter
A Broome County woman has been accused of driving while intoxicated after the car she was driving slammed into a vehicle, injuring her 9-year-old daughter.
Authorities said 35-year-old Tina Harb of Harpursville faces three felony counts as well as other charges in connection with Thursday's crash. It happened on Ouaquaga Road in the town of Colesville.
According to the Broome County Sheriff's Office, Harb told deputies she lost control of the vehicle and collided with a parked vehicle located off the roadway. The crash caused significant damage.
Investigators said Harb's daughter sustained minor injuries in the incident. She was taken to Wilson Medical Center in Johnson City for evaluation.
Harb allegedly displayed several signs of intoxication. Officials said alcoholic beverages were found in the vehicle and in her purse. She refused to submit to a field sobriety test and also declined to submit a breath sample to determine her blood alcohol content. A computer check indicated her license had been revoked.
Harb has been charged with driving while intoxicated with a previous conviction within ten years and aggravated DWI with a child. She also was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, endangering the welfare of a child and moving from a lane unsafely.
Harb was arraigned and released on an appearance ticket. She was ordered to appear in Colesville town court later this month.
