Pennsylvania Woman Let Niece, 6, Drive Out of Tight Parking Spot

BEAVER, Pa.-- Police say a western Pennsylvania woman endangered her 6-year-old niece by having the girl back the woman's car out of a tight parking spot, wrecking two other parked cars in the process.

Fifty-five-year-old Rebecca Beatty, of Aliquippa, and her attorney have not returned calls on the charges she waived to Beaver County Court on Tuesday.

Police charged Beatty June 10 after she picked up her niece from a dance program at Ambridge Area High School.

The Beaver County Times reports Wednesday that Beatty found another car parked too close for her to enter her own vehicle through the driver's side. That's when police say Beatty had her niece get in and back the car out.

Police say the child hit a parked car, pushing it over a curb until it hit another car parked on the street.
