A Winslow woman was summoned on multiple charges after she crashed her vehicle while driving on Route 137 during the early morning hours of Dec. 3.

Chief Deputy Jeff Trafton of the Waldo County Sheriff's Office said Amanda C. Jurdak, 36, of Winslow, was summoned for theft by receiving stolen property, failure to give notice of a personal injury accident and failure to display a valid inspection sticker.

Trafton said a deputy responded to a report of a van that drove off the road on Route 137 and struck a bank at 4:23 a.m. Dec. 3. When the deputy arrived, Jurdak had already left the scene of the crash and the deputy was unable to locate her. However, while waiting for a tow truck to arrive, the deputy noticed the vehicle had a fake inspection sticker, Trafton said.

When the deputy ran information on the inspection sticker, he discovered it had been stolen from a garage in Troy earlier in the year.

Later on in the day, Jurdak contacted the garage where her vehicle had been towed to inquire how much it would cost to repair the van. The deputy was able to acquire Jurdak's phone number from the garage and track her down to her home where she admitted she was driving the van at the time of the crash.

In addition to being summoned on the theft by stolen property, failure to report a personal injury accident and failure to display a valid inspection sticker charges, Trafton said Jurdak was also ticketed for not having insurance.
