Sharon Smith works at the Our Hero restaurant, 1802 E. Main St., and heard the commotion from the first crash.
“All the customers ran outside — I mean literally everybody inside ran outside,” Smith said.
Witnesses at the scene submitted video to our news partner WHIO-TV that shows the black Firebird turn around over the curb, and proceed eastbound on Main Street before striking another car stopped in the traffic.
“Its just crazy because if she would have just pulled over when she hit the first car, all the other accidents wouldn’t have happened,” Smith said.
The video continues to show the car back up, and take off again eastbound on Main Street before swerving and hitting the back end of an SUV, the third collision in less than two minutes.
A man said he saw Doyle exit her car and start walking after it had become disabled from the crashes. He asked her to stop, but she continued walking, police said, so he grabbed her and took her to the ground.
Doyle was charged with driving under suspension, hit-skip and failure to control and an assault charge for allegedly biting and punching the man who tried to stop her, according to a Springfield Police Division report.
Doyle was scheduled to appear in court Thursday morning, but didn’t show up.
According to Clark County Municipal court records, she is scheduled to appear again Friday morning.
If she does not show up for a second time, court officials said a bench warrant for her arrest could be filed.
According to Springfield police records, Doyle was not tested for drugs or alcohol at the scene of the crash.
