On New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2020, at approximately 11:35PM, a vehicle driven southbound on Robert Road at State Route 69 ran into the Shell Convenience Store at 8233 East State Route 69. The driver was the only occupant in the vehicle and was identified as 18-year-old Cassandra Timm, an Indiana resident attending college in the Prescott area. Miss Timm suffered minor injuries and was treated and released from the hospital.
Miss Timm was believed to be impaired at the time of the crash and was booked into the Yavapai County Jail on charges of Extreme DUI, being a person under 21 with spirituous liquors in her system, felony criminal damage and other charges.
At the time of the crash the store was closed and unoccupied, so there were no other injuries. Extensive damage was done to the building and its inventory and will be unable to operate fully for an undetermined period.
It should be noted that the person involved has not yet been convicted of a crime and is presumed innocent. The presumption of innocence shall continue until such time that the person accused may be found guilty by a court of law.
