No injuries were reported Sunday afternoon when a car turned right on red in Forestville near the vicinity of Pine Street.
Eyewitnesses identified the driver as Melanie Merkell, a middle-aged woman who lives alone with two cats and a nondescript fern, and is currently being treated for arthritis. Ms. Merkell stopped her late-model Acura at a red light at approximately 2:33 PM., and after seeing no approaching traffic made a right hand turn with minimal risk. She arrived home shortly after navigating her way through a series of driving maneuvers.
Ms. Merkel declined to comment about her commute, her cats or her fern.
The Forestville Fire Department could not be reached for comment.
