Woman charged in wrong-way crash a no-show
The woman charged with driving drunk the wrong way on I-95 in New Rochelle did not appear in court as scheduled this morning.
Tanisha Gomez had her attorney, Saul Pacinsky, appear on her behalf. Pacinsky presented the court with a doctor's note, as proof that Gomez is still hospitalized and recovering from the injuries she suffered while allegedly driving the wrong way in a fatal crash on I-95 earlier this month.
Gomez is accused of crashing into another car and killing the passenger inside.
A new court date has been set for Aug. 15, with a warning from the district attorney, that if Gomez is a no-show then, he has the option to issue a bench warrant for her arrest.
