Ice Cream Truck Driver Crashes & Injures 3 People
According to authorities, a woman in Virginia Beach drunkenly crashed an ice cream truck into a car, injuring three people on National Ice Cream Day.
35-year-old Ellaine Durham is charged with driving while intoxicated and three counts of hit-and-run for the Sunday crash.
Virginia Beach Police say that Durham was driving the truck through the area around 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, when she hit a car and injured the car’s occupants. The three crash victims were taken to a hospital, but with non-life-threatening injuries. According to police, Durham was found near the scene.
It is still unclear whether or not Durham has a lawyer.
National Ice Cream Day has been celebrated on the third Sunday of July since President Ronald Reagan signed a 1984 proclamation in honor of the treat–but it’s probably not how these poor passengers hoped to celebrate the day.
