Cocaine, Potato Salad on Woman’s Shopping List, Whitemarsh PD Says

Charges are pending against Carolyn Murray, 21, after a Joshua Road crash.

WHITEMARSH, PA -- Police are investigating a crash in which a 21-year-old woman rear-ended a 76-year-old man and was in possession of a list that included German potato salad, cocaine, a reminder to get high and Pepsi, according to Whitemarsh Police.

Officers responded to a crash at the stop sign on Joshua Road at Cedar Grove Road just before 1 p.m. on April 28, and found that Carolyn Murray, 21, of Collegeville, had rear-ended the Lafayette Hill man who was waiting at the stop sign, according to police.

There were no signs that Murray attempted to stop at the sign, and Murray’s “was very out of it, her speech was slurred and she had no idea where she was,” police said.

I'm assuming the 76-year-old victim is okay?

There was no report of EMS being needed for the victim, Matt.

She was late to the tea-bagger's convention and was bringing an 8 ball to the GOP.

Wow. Another brainless mouth-breather with an agenda to push that has nothing to do with the story. Interestingly enough, morons like dopey741 reside on both sides of the political aisle. THAT'S what's wrong with this country.

Who puts Getman potato salad on grocery list? I'd be ashamed someone'd accidentally see it.
