LIBERTY TWP., Ohio (WKBN) – A woman from Warren is facing several charges after taking out a Liberty motel’s pillar with her car, which police said contained two small children.
Officers were called to the Motel 6 on Belmont Avenue around 6 p.m. Monday for a car that hit the building. They found the car up against the motel, with a pillar on its roof.
Witnesses said Kedline Joseph, 22, was driving backward around the parking lot before hitting the building.
Liberty Police said when they talked to the driver about what happened, things just didn’t add up.
“The driver stated she wasn’t driving. She stated the children weren’t in the car. She misled us in several things. It turns out she wasn’t the mother of the children or the owner of the vehicle,” Sgt. Michael Janovick said.
Joseph was charged with reckless endangerment of children, reckless operation of a vehicle, and not having a driver’s license.
The vehicle Joseph was driving had Missouri plates.
The damage to Motel 6 was minor.
