Waynesboro police are asking for the public’s help in finding a woman wanted on assault and drug charges. Emily Laura Simpson, 20, failed to show up for her trial June 3, on an assault charge. Since that April 10 incident, Simpson has also been arrested for driving under the influence of drugs and is wanted on a felony warrant for possession of methamphetamine.

On May 1, officers responded to a series of accidents on Hopeman Parkway. Simpson was one of the drivers involved in the accidents. She admitted to taking a prescription drug that wasn’t hers and then attempting to make a right turn from North Delphine Avenue onto Hopeman Parkway, in her 2002 Honda Civic. She turned too wide however and hit a 1999 Nissan sedan, driven by an Augusta County woman. Simpson fled the scene, later hitting another car on Hopeman Parkway at the Ivy Street intersection. Other drivers prevented Simpson from fleeing the second crime scene.

In addition to missing the earlier court date, Simpson is scheduled to appear in Waynesboro District Court June 24 for trial on the misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence and hit & run, in connection with those two incidents in May.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Waynesboro Police Department at 942-6675 or Central Shenandoah Crime Stoppers at 1-800-322-2017.
