Woman accused of hitting elderly man with car
A Cache woman was hit with charges from a Sept. 27 hit and run that left an 84-year-old man hospitalized with injuries.
Sonya Joyce Tahchawwickah, 45, made her initial appearance Wednesday in Comanche County District Court where she received felony charges of causing an accident without a valid driver’s license, great bodily injury and leaving the scene of an accident involving injury, as well as misdemeanor counts of driving with a revoked license (third and subsequent offense), records indicate. She faces up to five years in prison if convicted.
Tahchawwickah is accused of running down the elderly man shortly after 6:30 p.m. Sept. 27. According to the court affidavit, Cache police responded to the wreck at 1003 West E and found the elderly man injured in the roadway. He was taken to Comanche County Memorial Hospital for treatment with “severe injuries to his left foot and possibly his left leg.” A witness provided Sgt. James McCarty with a mirror lens from the suspect vehicle and the number on the back of the lens came back to a 2002 Honda.
