Molly Foisy York County Jail

 

Trooper Benjamin Handzel was parked behind a tow truck in the breakdown lane at the intersection of Route 202 and Blaisdell Corner Road with the cruiser’s emergency lights on around 9:30 p.m. Passing traffic had slowed to about 20 mph while the tow truck operator from Chandlers Towing and Recovery was securing a pick-up truck to the flatbed, police said.

 

Police said 22-year-old Molly Foisy was driving a Nissan Sentra east on Route 202 at a “high rate of speed” and was passing cars when she struck Handzel’s cruiser and narrowly missed the tow truck.

 

No one was injured in the crash, police said.

 

After the crash, Trooper Conner Walton administered field sobriety tests and determined Foisy was operating under the influence. An intoxilyzer test administered at York County Jail indicated she was over the legal limit, but police did not release her blood alcohol content.

 

Police say Foisy was also texting while driving.
