Details of the hit-and-run
The misdemeanor occurred in Beverly Hills. The Beverly House Police Department received a report on 20th October around 10 pm. The report stated that a sedan hit a car that was parked, as stated by Entertainment Tonight. The car’s driver had left the scene before the authorities could reach. Harvey was seen by officers near the crime scene walking down the street. She was then identified as the driver, as stated by TMZ.
Harvey hit the parked car, a Prius. It was hit so hard that Harvey’s own car which was a Mercedes G-Wagon was tossed to its side, as reported by TMZ. Alcohol has not been fully ruled out of the picture but witnesses claimed that Harvey was texting on her phone while driving and hitting the other car.
