FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A Fairfield driver who told police she glanced down to reach a cup of coffee Friday ended up causing a three-car crash, police said.

The woman was traveling north on Rowland Road around 9:15 a.m. when she swerved to the right, colliding with an unoccupied parked car, police said.

The force of the crash pushed the second car 54 feet across a lawn and into another parked car, where a service person was filing some paperwork, police said.

While trying to correct her car, the first driver hit the second car again pushing it into the third car for a second time, police said.

The driver of the first car, a 51-year-old Eunice Avenue resident, was issued a summons for failure to maintain proper lane.

No one was injured in the incident.
