Almost three years after fleeing from Tewksbury Police after a routine traffic stop on Main Street, a Haverhill woman pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to multiple charges including failure to stop for police, according to a report from the Lowell Sun.
Diane Whitcomb, 47, of 34 Woodland Park Drive, Haverhill pleaded not guilty to two counts of failure to stop, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, failure to stop for police and failure to signal, according to the Sun.
In October 2010, a Tewksbury officer observed a rented Mercury Sable run a red light on Main Street and pulled the car over for the minor traffic infraction, but the female operator of the vehicle allegedly sped off and down I-495, according to the Sun.
State Police found the Mercury abandoned in Merrimac, NH the next day, and traced the rental back to Whitcomb's husband, according to the Sun.
On Wednesday Whitcomb denied that she was involved in the incident, and bail was set at $250, with conditions of no driving, no drugs and no alcohol, according to the Sun.
