Trial postponed for Hong Kong model in arch crash
RENO, Nev. – A trial in Reno, Nev., has been postponed for a fashion model from Hong Kong accused of crashing a rented motor home into the city's landmark arch on Labor Day.
Rosemary Vandenbroucke faces three misdemeanor charges in the wreck: vehicular hit-and-run, failure to maintain insurance and making an improper turn.
Her trial in Reno Municipal Court had been set for Wednesday, but city spokeswoman Michele Anderson says it's been continued. No new date has been set.
Authorities say the crash caused only minor damage to the arch. It happened a day after the 28-year-old Vandenbroucke was arrested on a drug charge at the Burning Man counterculture festival 100 miles north of Reno.
A preliminary hearing on that charge is scheduled for Feb. 9 in Pershing County Justice court in Lovelock.
