BETHEL PARK, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a woman tried to run over two children in a school parking lot and made racial slurs about one of the youths. Eighteen-year-old Haley Jankowski, of Bethel Park, faces numerous charges stemming from the June 2 altercation in the western Pennsylvania community. She has denied the allegations, saying she wasn't trying to hit the youths but instead was trying to flee the scene because a large crowd was converging on her car and throwing bricks and rocks at it. She and the teen she was driving suffered minor injuries in the crash. Authorities say she was driving under the influence.
