VAN BUREN, Ark. (AP) - A woman accused of leaving the scene of a
minor traffic crash in western Arkansas told police she did it because she didn't want her ice cream to melt.

Van Buren police say one vehicle rear-ended another on Arkansas
Highway 59 on Sunday evening, but that the driver of the second car
didn't stop to check on the vehicle she had hit. The other driver
called police and set off in pursuit.

Fort Smith television station KHBS reports that Flora Burkhart told police she didn't think there was enough damage to merit stopping - and that she didn't want her ice cream to melt.

Burkhart was cited for following too closely and leaving the scene of an accident.
