Gloucester Police/Fire: No charges filed in 'distracted' crash case

Police/Fire

A woman who told police she was “distracted by her phone” struck a parked vehicle on Prospect Street Wednesday about 1:49 p.m., damaging the parked vehicle’s door, mirror and tire.

The 21-year-old driver does not face charges, and a baby who was in the 21-year-old’s vehicle at the time of the crash was uninjured, according to paramedics.

Police said the woman agreed to pay for damages to the parked vehicle.

A 41-year-old Cherry Street woman was arrested and charged with driving with a suspended license Wednesday about 2 p.m., after police stopped her on Dale Avenue.

Police had run a random license plate reader scan of Jennifer E. Shairs’s license plate, which found that Shairs’s license was suspended and non-renewable.

A man pulled what he reported to police was a dog carcass from the waters of Gloucester Harbor near Cape Pond Ice’s wharf Wednesday about 4:20 p.m.

Police were unsure of how long the carcass had been in the water, but noted that part of its face “appears” to be missing. Officers called animal control to investigate.
