Police Looking For Driver Who Nearly Hit Hanover Family

HANOVER (CBS) – Police are looking for an Abington woman after she nearly hit a family with her car and collided with their house while evading pursing officers in Hanover on Tuesday.

Kathleen Tierney was pulled over at the intersection of Webster Street and East Water Street in Rockland on Tuesday for a traffic violation. Police said she got out of her Monte Carlo in a “frantic” manner. As an officer attempted to help her, she hopped back into her car, put it in reverse, and attempted to hit officers.

WBZ-TV’s Alana Gomez reports.

The officer managed to avoid Tierney, who then took off and the pursuit was on.

Police later broke off their pursuit after she almost hit the Dr. Tim Curran and his daughter Laura outside their Hanover home.

“It seemed to happen so fast, but other times it was in slow motion,” said Curran, who was in the front yard and saw Tierney turn toward him.

Kathleen Tierney has outstanding warrants in three other towns.

Curran then yelled for his children to get out of the way as he ran over to shield them.

“We just tried to brace for the impact,” said Curran.

Tierney just hit a corner of the house, narrowly missing Curran and the children before taking off.

Officers then found Tierney’s car on Pond Street Thursday morning, about three miles away from Hanover house she hit.

Tierney has outstanding warrants three towns, including in Holbrook, where she is accused in a hit-and-run accident (she hit a car parked in a driveway there) and in Abington.
