VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - A woman accused of injuring her 16-year-old friend by pushing her off a bridge in southwestern Washington has been offered a plea deal in the case.
The Columbian reports 19-year-old Taylor Smith appeared in Clark County District Court Monday. Defense attorney Christie Emrich said the state presented an offer Friday.
The details were not shared in court.
The 16-year-old suffered multiple injuries after Smith shoved her off the span over the Lewis River at Moulton Falls Regional Park near Vancouver, Washington, on Aug. 7.
She plunged the equivalent of three stories before belly-flopping into the water below and suffered six broken ribs, a punctured lung and air bubbles in her chest, officials said.
The incident was captured on cellphone video that went viral on social media but was eventually removed. Surveillance camera video also showed the moment Smith shoved the teen off the bridge ledge.
