Monday night at 5 p.m., a silver Altima stuck a blue Hyundai in Delray Beach. The three occupants of the Altima fled the scene, scattering in different directions. The driver of the Hyundai was able to describe two of the runners, one of which police caught up with before she could get on a bus. Heather Zipron was found with prescription drugs and a syringe in her purse and fresh needle marks on her arms. However, Zipron, who stood 5-foot-3 and weighed 110 pounds, claimed she was not driving at the time of the accident.
Zipron was then asked how tall the other occupants of the car were, she said they were 5-foot-9 and 6-feet. What Zipron did not know was the officers had taken note that the driver’s seat of the Altima was pulled up very close to the steering wheel, so much so that when a 5-foot-9 officer tried to get into the car to point out the hole in Zipron’s story, his knees were at his chest. It was then that Zipron caved and admitted to being the driver. Officers then found out that Zipron’s license had been suspended more than five time. Zipron was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on multiple counts including leaving the scene of a crash and possession of a controlled substance.
