The Hebron mom whose car struck and killed a RHAM Middle School teacher in the school parking lot earlier this year is facing charges that could land her behind bars for up to five years.
Earlier this week, authorities obtained an arrest warrant charging 50-year-old Elizabeth Everett with misconduct with a motor vehicle – a felony – and unsafe backing.
She's accused of backing over 65-year-old Dawn Mallory-Bushor, a seventh-grade math teacher, in March after accidentally driving into the bus lane at RHAM while dropping off her child.
Mallory was walking into the building when she was struck. She was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, where she later died.
Everett turned herself in at State Police Troop K barracks Tuesday afternoon, police said. She was released after posting $100,000 bond and is due in Rockville Superior Court on Aug. 12.
Following the deadly collision, the town of Hebron added speed bumps and modified traffic patterns in the school parking lot in an effort to improve safety.
Just a couple weeks ago, the town received a notice on behalf of Mallory’s estate detailing plans to sue on account of “a dangerous or defective roadway” that led to the teacher's death.
Hebron's town manager declined to comment on the arrest Tuesday.
