Woman facing charges after crashing into tree in Roswell

ROSWELL, NM - A woman was arrested and charged following a crash in Roswell recently, according to the Roswell Daily Record.

Authorities said 27-year-old Savannah Morgan of Capitan was driving a stolen Toyota Tacoma when she crashed into a tree at Kentucky Avenue and West Second Street on July 29.

New Mexico State Police had attempted to perform a traffic stop on the vehicle after a call from Morgan's mother alleging that her daughter had taken the car without her consent.

Court records indicated that when the officer got out of the car, Savannah Morgan sped off in the Tacoma.  As the officer set out in pursuit, she allegedly traveled at high speeds, used the bike lane to pass other motorists, and went through traffic lights.

Morgan eventually struck a tree and then tried to flee the scene on foot but was apprehended, police said. After being taken to an area hospital, she was booked on charges of aggravated fleeing of a law enforcement officer and leaving the scene of an accident with damage.
