Texting While Driving Lands Woman in Ditch

A woman and her boyfriend are both facing charges after she was texting while driving and ended up in a ditch.

Sheriff’s deputies say 20-year-old Zoe Brooks of Latrobe, PA, was on Old Road in French Creek at about 1:15 a.m. when, while she was texting, her car went off the roach and down an embankment.

Her boyfriend, 21-year-old Jesse Yates of Edinboro, came to help her and, after he parked his car in the middle of the road, deputies learned he was driving while intoxicated. He was also cited for parking on a highway.

Brooks is charged with using a hand-held electronic device while driving, driving while intoxicated and moving from a lane unsafely.
