Reporters for CNN have a great job, but that doesn’t make them immune to tragedy. One former anchor is having a terrible time, and this report is a tragic one to report.
Page Six reports that Felicia Taylor, a former anchor for news media giant CNN, was arrested after a hit-and-run allegation. Taylor was arrested in Palm Beach, Florida on July 28th. She allegedly hit another car while being at the wheel of her white Mercedes.
Taylor directly impacted a vehicle, as per the police report. Even though the crash led to the driver of the vehicle getting injured, she made a run for it from the premises. The 57-year-old hit the rear bumper of a black Ford. The 24-year-old driver, who was driving the Ford, had his car positioned right in front of her Mercedes.
His vehicle was struck from behind by the white Mercedes. The impact caused [him] to strike the steering wheel, causing multiple complaints of injuries. Taylor’s Mercedes was seen “fleeing the scene of the accident without rendering aid or stopping to provide information.”
The Beach Police placed Taylor under arrest. In their report, they added that she immediately fled the scene. She didn’t try to make sure whether anyone needed medical or otherwise aid, and didn’t try to provide any info either.
The former CNN anchor after later confronted by a police officer after they pulled her over. She feigned being nonchalant and accepted that she was in a crash. However, she said she wants to go back home, and the accident wasn’t a “big deal.” While she told the officers that she was traveling from The Colony Hotel, it was actually found to be close.
Taylor acknowledged being involved in a traffic crash and the other driver was ‘OK.’ Taylor continued to state that she wanted to go back to her house . . . and the accident was ‘not a big deal.’ and when confronted that the Colony Hotel was closed, Taylor didn’t have a response.
This is a sad story, and one that many people could learn from. Hopefully, this situation comes to a resolution, but Felicia Taylor will likely have to pay the consequences for her actions.
