Florida Highway Patrol troopers tracked down a Marco Island teen accused of fleeing the scene of a crash Sunday.
Alexandria Joy Curcie, 19, of the 100 block of Delbrook Way, was arrested later Sunday. She faces charges of failing to stop and remain at the scene of a crash involving injuries.
According to reports, Curcie was driving her mother’s 2006 BMW 325i when she rear-ended another driver in a 2002 Dodge Caravan on U.S. 41 East.
The van driver caught the license plate of the BMW as it pulled away. The victim was driving with her four children, one of which had to receive treatment for neck and back injuries at a Physicians Regional Hospital.
Troopers tracked the BMW’s plates to Curcie’s mother and visited the home where both lived.
Curcie at first told troopers she had let a friend borrow the car and didn’t know where it was, reports stated. Later, she said that was a lie and led troopers to the BMW parked in the backyard.
Curcie faces a third-degree felony charge.
