A Wilmington woman is behind bars tonight after running a stop sign, and crashing into an ambulance.

According to police, Lashanna Fennell was driving across 14th Street, and failed to stop at the intersection of Wooster and 14th.

She drove into the side of a Bladen County ambulance.

A patient in the ambulance was rushed to New Hanover Regional as a safety precaution. Two passengers in Fennell’s car were sent to the hospital as well, with non-life threatening injuries.

Fennell is being charged with driving with a revoked license, careless and reckless driving, and driving a car without proper registration or insurance.

“She is indefinitely suspended; she shouldn’t be driving due to her violations. I have witnesses positively identifying her as the driver, even though she was evasive,” said Larry Zettelmaier of the Wilmington Traffic Division.

Fennell was taken to New Hanover County Jail.

AAA Carolinas says it expects an increase in the number of travelers over the Memorial Day weekend in North Carolina and South Carolina despite a recent spike in gas prices.

The travel services company predicted Tuesday that holiday travel will be up five percent from the 2008 Memorial Day weekend. Around 754,000 North Carolina drivers and 369,000 South Carolina motorists are expected to travel beginning Friday.

AAA Carolinas president Dave Parsons says the desire to get away is overcoming economic downturns and recent gas price increases. He says that bodes well for the hospitality industry.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas is $2.27 in North Carolina and $2.16 in South Carolina, which is a 25-cent increase in both states since the Easter holiday. But that’s still around $1.50 less than a year ago.
