At about 2:15 am Wednesday, Sierra Express Taxi (Chevy Suburban) was hit by another vehicle in front of the Village. The second vehicle, a 97 Dodge Caravan driven by 21 year old Michelle Dorange, took off, police report.

After being hit, the taxi followed Dorange toward Main Street, where police say the Dodge Caravan spun out in the stormy conditions. The driver of the taxi used his vehicle to pin the Caravan to a snowbank, where the two drivers got into an argument until police arrived.

Dorange was arrested for driving under the influence, and hit and run.
