Police: Driver Was High, Reckless in Piermont

Massachusetts woman accused of driving dangerously

A woman accused of driving dangerously while on drugs down Piermont's Main Street appeared in Wednesday for a preliminary hearing, but no verdict was passed down.

said Nancy Ward, a 48-year-old from Hingham, MA was pulled over Feb. 14 at around 3 p.m.

"She was passing cars on Main Street, running them off the road and placing other motorists in danger," said Michael O'Shea, Piermont's chief of police.

Police soon learned she was driving high, O'Shea said, and charged Ward with driving while ability impaired by drugs, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and reckless driving.

Disorderly conduct is a violation; the rest are misdemeanors.

Ward was arraigned that day, and left Rockland County Jail on $2,500 bail.
