"She was still on the accelerator and her tires were squealing like she was trying to jump forward at me," stated Detective Matthew Carl.East Windsor CT Detective Matthew Carl stated the whole building shook at about 7:30 am, on Wednesday, September 12 2007 and he went to investigate what had caused the crash. He didn't expect to watch a driver back up and crash their car into the police station a second time. By the time he had retreated to the lobby, he saw that she had managed to get the car stuck in a narrow opening.
Police Chief Edward DeMarco stated that they had witnesses and evidence that the driver had arrived at the rear of the police station and had approached it with her head and face covered with a blanket. She then evidently drove around to the front of the station and deliberately rammed the car into the front doors, twice.
Lillian Dunn, 68, of Laurel Circle was arrested shortly afterwards and is being held on $250,000 bond. She is charged with operating under the influence, first-degree reckless endangerment, interfering with an officer, fourth-degree criminal mischief, first-degree conspiracy to commit assault and operating a vehicle with a suspended license.
Not surprizingly, the preliminary investigation showed that she had deliberately rammed the police station. She apparently was upset at the way the police had handled an earlier missing person report and she had also called 911 earlier in the week demanding , demanding to be put on welfare. Police report that the front doors are destroyed but there isn't any structural damage from her "assault."
I don't think she has much of a chance of having her roommate bail her out of jail though, since she had borrowed their P T Cruiser for the ramming.
